BayNet is pleased to announce the creation of a new listserv intended to facilitate discussion of the use of on-call library workers in the Bay Area. In the current economic climate, we anticipate an increase in this type of work, which brings particular headaches for both employers and employees. This listserv will create opportunities to solve logistical problems, solicit peer support, and find a larger pool of qualified on-call candidates.
