Abstract: As a former Hunter Library student assistant (now full-time staff member), I found that my time spent working in the library not only contributed to my success, but it gave me the opportunity to serve the library and its mission. Based on a literature review, I am not the only one who has benefited from these work experiences.To gain a better understanding of how student assistants benefit Hunter Library and how Hunter Library impacts the student assistants, I had to investigate to dig deeper to support my observations.
