Libraries provide a multitude of resources, serving as centers of intellectual and personal growth for the student body. This growth is especially present in student employees of UF George A. Smathers Libraries. Student employees consist of diverse backgrounds and often serve as liaisons to bring the student body closer to the libraries. Library student employees and Smathers Libraries share a mutually beneficial relationship, where both significantly contribute to each other's growth and success.

This article will provide a spotlight on diverse perspectives, experiences, and voices of three student employees of different library branches to better understand the ways in which working for the libraries paves the way for student success.
