Guide for the Interim Librarian
The CBG Guide for the Interim Librarian
to provide a systematic means of itemizing important facts about services, procedures and routines in the library when a temporary is hired
to fill in for a permanent employee. While day-to-day library
operations are often invisible to the outsider, library users will expect uninterrupted service whether or not it is provided by the
"regular" librarian or a newcomer. For this reason, it is
important that an expert
staff person take the time necessary to fill out the CBG Guide
completely. What is taken for
granted and viewed as routine by the permanent staff will be new and
challenging for the Interim Librarian. In addition to supplying
answers for temps, the CBG Guide can be used as an
outline for a library procedures manual.
