Student Employment in Academic Libraries Symposium


The Student Employment in Academic Libraries Virtual Symposium seeks to showcase educationally purposeful student employment. We're providing a space for colleagues who care deeply for the growth and success of students to share ideas about student employment, and connect with and learn from other practitioners. Our focus is on approaches to student employment that are compassionate, strive to be inclusive and equitable, and center learners and learning.

We are seeking contributions that involve student employees as more than just subjects of discussion, that are willing to examine failures and difficulties as well as successes, and that recognize supervisors of student employees as learners too, growing with and alongside students.

News and Updates


We're currently working to edit and process the recordings from all of the SEAL presentations, along with slides, so that we can make them available for view in the IUPUI institutional repository ScholarWorks.

As soon as that work is completed we'll make sure to link to the recordings here. Check back soon for updates!
