Student Employment

The lib-hr team supports student hiring whenever it is requested. To streamline this activity, please use the new form to submit requests/information for student hires. The information will be submitted from the form to create a student appointment. The system will then notify the student, the supervisor, and HR processor of the successful transaction with an email. The student can then enter their hours into Atlas as normal; with hours approved by the supervisor weekly. Please contact with any questions.
