The CrAFT Studio at UNC Asheville: Student Employment Opportunities

Now open on Ramsey Library's Lower Level, the CrAFT Studio is a multi-use creativity studio at the intersection of technology, creativity, and scholarship.

Want to become a part of the CrAFTy Crew?
We are hiring Student Technicians for the Fall 2019 Semester!

D. Hiden Ramsey Library, located at the heart of UNC Asheville’s campus, is the vital center of the pursuit of knowledge at UNC Asheville - inspiring intellectual curiosity, partnering in scholarly endeavors, anticipating information and service needs, exceeding expectations and embodying the university's highest aims. The CrAFT Studio is a student-driven space adjacent to the Media Design Lab where all UNC Asheville students, faculty, and staff can utilize a myriad of tools to be creative at the intersection of technology, creativity, and scholarship. Rather than just calling our studio a “makerspace”, we are mutli-use space meshing elements of a multitude of creative spaces, be they drafting studios, machine shops, or the quintessential artist studio.

As one of the CrAFT Studio Student Technicians, you will also help create and implement workshops based around the new offerings, support students, faculty, and staff using the space, and develop your own “crafting” skills. You will, in collaboration with our staff, learn and engage with new technology, facilitate our users utilizing the studio space, work on exciting projects, and research new and exciting ways that scholarship and creativity intersect. You will assist with inventory control in the studio and, through learning the equipment, will help to develop a working plan of new technology to bring in to help the studio grow over time. You will be a valued member of the Public Services team, answering directly to the User Engagement Librarian and working with a variety of library staff and other student workers.  

This is an amazing position for a student interested in the intersection between creativity, scholarship, and technology; no technical experience is required, but we do require a willingness to learn new skills and an eye to the future of libraries. 

 

We are currently seeking students who have availability during the operating hours of the studio, which are
Monday - Friday • 9:00 am - 5:00 pm.
