This book offers a novel, more efficient, and mutually beneficial approach to attracting, training, and working with short-term staff in ways that benefit all involved: the organization, the short-term staff, and library personnel in general.

• Covers all types of short-term library workers: volunteers, service learning students, interns, work-study students, and grant personnel

• Documents how having experienced staff mentor and collaborate with short-term staff presents new opportunities for learning and growth as well as provides the direct benefit of completing tasks and projects more quickly
