Australian International School of Singapore
I worked for both the Primary Library and the Senior Library of the Australian International School.
The basic tasks were similar: circulation, shelving, cataloguing, book covering, maintenance of borrowers lists and dealing with overdues.
I would say that the Primary side required more interaction with the children and also more creativity in the way we displayed our collections.
The Senior students are more independent in their reading than the younger ones but i tried to always be available to help them find the best resources for their needs.
Cataloguing on both sides involved books, periodicals, ebooks, audiobooks, dvds, class sets, equipment.
The library subscribes to several organizations (science centre, teachers associations, etc.) and it was part of my job to keep track and manage these memberships along with the print editions of magazines subscriptions.
I saw my job as assisting in two ways: making the library welcoming for students, staff and parents but also taking care of all the routine tasks so the teacher-librarians could focus on their management and teaching responsibilities.
I genuinely enjoyed my job very much and really loved the quality of the school.
