As an RA, you receive special privileges in the library. These may include:
To avail of these privileges, you need to first obtain an RA card.
To obtain an RA card, you must fill out an RA card form. The form can be downloaded here: RA form. You must print it, complete it and then bring this form to your professor and ask him/her to supply the end date of your employment, whether or not he/she gives you permission to check out books under his/her name, and his/her signature:
Once this form is complete, please bring it to the reference desk during our open hours and we will grant you a card:
You may then show this card to check out books and receive a photocopy card at the circulation desk, and to receive additional print credit in the ISP office.
In order to be paid in a timely fashion, it is IMPERATIVE that you follow the following steps to submit and obtain approval for your timesheets. DO NOT WAIT until the last day of the pay period to fill in your hours - some pay periods have earlier deadlines so to avoid missing a payment, record your hours every day!
Please remember you are participating in a University-wide payment system and therefore all deadlines must be STRICTLY ADHERED TO if you are to be paid on time.
If your professor asks you to print out or copy a large number of documents, you can request additional credit be added to your student account to cover this cost. To request this allowance, simply show your RA card at the Law School Help Desk office which is located on the Lower Level of the law school building. Credit is added $10 at a time and can be requested more than once.
