Meet our Peer Consultants at the Welcome Desk!

Posted in About the Library, Academic Communities, General News, Library Student Assistants, and Students

The Pollak Library and the CSUF Irvine Center Library are among the largest employers of student assistants at Cal State Fullerton. We have a long history of recruiting and mentoring talented students from across all majors, and are now actively engaged in the campus-wide strategic goal of developing High Impact Practices (HIPs) for these students to help them better succeed in their educational and professional goals. The work they do for us is invaluable, and our libraries could not deliver the high level of services we provide to our campus community and the public without their efforts and expertise.

Pollak Library Peer Consultants are a team of student employees, who play a variety of roles currently and in the near future. They operate the Welcome Desk at the First Floor South entrance, answering questions about the library and the campus as a whole. They will be holding office hours in Fall 2018 to support students of all levels who have general research or library-related needs. They will also be teaching peer-led introductory workshops on library services, which will also be available to all students. Their goals are to foster a sense of belonging and welcome among their peers.

As we host 24/7 Study in the library, find out more about our Peer Consultants below!
