Swem library was forced to eliminate its e-SWAT services as a result of funding issues.

In the past, the library has employed several students to aid their classmates with library or technological questions. Since the minimum wage in Virginia has risen but the government has significantly cut the College’s funding, Swem can no longer afford to pay the e-SWAT employees.

“In what promises to be a very difficult budget year, we need to focus our student wages on essential library services,” Dean of Libraries Connie McCarthy wrote in an e-mail to employees.

The three e-SWAT employees will now work in Swem’s iPod service program as well as in basic reference and database assistance.
