The hiring, training, supervising and retention of student workers are lynchpins in the successful delivery of services in an academic library regardless of the size of the library and its parent institution.

How can you optimize your efforts to make your student workers are a value added work force and not just warm bodies that get tasks done in a just acceptable fashion? How can you train your students to learn multiple technologies even as they change such as the transition from Millennium to Sierra?
