Oct 2008 - Dec 2008
Reference Services Operations Intern
Compiled usage statistics and evaluative reports for the Internet Public Library’s subject guides (pathfinders). As a Reference Administrator, I had to manage the incoming questions to the QRC database. I processed the questions, either accepting or rejecting them. I sent a message to the patron if more information was needed, and decided what category the question should be transferred to. I posted notes to the questions with clarifying information or tips for IPL students and volunteers. At the end of my shift, I sent a shift report to the Senior Reference Administrator through e-mail.
