Student Assistants

The Library is proud to be one of the largest student employers on campus. Student assistants work on an hourly basis to support a wide range of Library services, including public services, book shelving, technology services, Automated Retrieval System (ARS) support, and various administrative duties. The Library aims to cross-train student assistants so they may work in more than one area.

Flexible work shifts are available, including evenings and weekends. Pay is dependent on experience and skill levels; in the few cases where specific and specialized skill sets are sought, such as graphic design, video editing, or foreign language proficiency, or when advanced job responsibilities are assigned, the pay rate may increase. Library student employees can work a maximum of 20 hours per week.

To work in the Library, a student must be currently enrolled at Sonoma State University. All students are encouraged to apply.
