PARSONS MUSIC LIBRARY POLICIES AND PROCEDURES (Brunet): M

For use during Parsons Music Library's temporary relocation to Sarah Brunet Hall

Merit Increases

Merit pay increases allow supervisors to reward students who perform at a level beyond expectation for a continued period of time. Students who work in the same job title for two consecutive semesters (not counting summers or semesters abroad) become eligible for a merit-based increase in pay at the start of the following semester. In order to provide a merit increase, supervisors must complete a student evaluation form. The rating on the evaluation determines the amount of the merit increase.

Missing Work (BASIC INFORMATION)

You are ultimately responsible for all of your scheduled shifts, and except in the case of sudden illness or emergency, the burden of finding a sub when you can't work falls on you. Failure to show up on time for a scheduled daytime shift (Mon-Fri 9-5), without prior notification or extenuating circumstances, will result in a verbal warning (1st offense), a written warning (2nd offense), or termination (3rd offense). Missing a shift after 5:00 or on a weekend, without prior notification or extenuating circumstances, can result in immediate termination. Students whose employment at the Music Library has been terminated for cause are ineligible for employment at Boatwright Library.

MRC materials

The Music Library sometimes includes MRC (Media Resource Center) DVDs and videos on our course reserves shelves. These items are clearly labelled as Music Library course reserves, and we will return them to the MRC when they are no longer needed for class.

Library patrons may return MRC materials to the Music Library, and we will check them in, but we do not collect overdue fines or replacement fees for MRC DVDs and videos. Please refer patrons directly to the MRC for these matters.

Music Department Concert Recordings

 

The Music Library has a large collection of Music Department concert recordings dating from the 1950s to the present, on CD, cassette tape, DAT tape, and LP record. These recordings are made by the Music Department's technology staff and are generally given to us between a few days and a few weeks after a performance. The recordings eventually get entered into the library catalog, but Linda may have some in her office that have not been cataloged yet.

 

If someone wants to listen to a recording of a Music Department performance, first check in the catalog, but if you don't find it, send the person to Linda. In many cases these recordings are unique copies. Therefore, they may be checked out by faculty, but students must use them on site.

Selected printed programs of Music Department performances are available here

Music Majors, Music Minors

Music majors and minors are permitted to check out ten CDs or DVDs at a time instead of the customary five.  They are told this at the beginning of the fall semester.

Music Teachers

Sometimes we get calls from parents looking for a music teacher for their children. Please refer all such calls to the Music Department (289-8277).

Musical Instruments

 

If students ask about renting an instrument to use for a class or lessons, direct them to the Music Department office (first door on the right as you enter the building).
