Notes

Abstract: In June 2012, the Willis Library at the University of North Texas (UNT) combined its first floor reference and circulation desks, creating the Library Services Desk (LSD). The two reference desks were staffed by one librarian and on graduate library assistant (GLA) where on-the-job training for the GLA occurred. The circulation desk originally was staffed by two to four undergraduate student workers. After the merger, the LSD was staffed by three circulation student workers and one reference worker, either a librarian, a reference specialist, or, and in most cases, a GLA. The reference workers are cross-trained in minimal circulation services. The circulation workers are cross-trained in basic reference services. The primary benefit of the merger has been the centralization of services for patrons.
