  1. Hi! Is this job no longer available? :( I’m an incoming student. I would have applied but I can’t do that before the 17th.

    1. Unfortunately the closing date for applications has past, so it looks like the job is no longer available :(

      Keep an eye on Careers Online, they have advertised library assistant positions in the past.

      Good luck!
