BLOG: Student Librarians
JCR Services Manager
Bethany Allen

Hi Grey!
We are looking to take on new student librarians to start working in the college library next academic year.
The role involves
- checking out and returning books and DVDs
- covering new books
- helping other students (particularly with the printer!)
And when all that's done, you can do your own work, provided that you stay until the end of your shift.
It's a great position to have, particularly as it is paid!
We're looking for responsiblereliable people who are approachable and happy to help! If you're interested in applying for the role, please fill in the application form which can be found in my uploaded documents, or attached to the accompanying email, and either place it in the Exec pigeonhole, or email it to me (bethany.allen@durham.ac.uk) by 6pm on Tuesday 17th June.
I'm looking forward to seeing your applications! Bethany :) X

BLOG: DSU Referendum
JCR Senior DSU Rep
James Crickmore

Alongside the Student Trustee elections happenning this week, there is also a referendum on changes to the DSU's Articles of Association (the constitution.)

There are four main changes:
1. Splitting the members of the Union into 'Student Members' and 'Company Law Members'. This is a change necessary to ensure the Union is compliant with the law!
2. Increasing the number of external trustees from four to five. This is to increase the range of areas of expertise that the trustees cover.
3. Decrease the term of office for external trustees from four years to three years. This is to make the length of office more in line with most other charities.
4. Decrease the threshold for a referendum to pass from 75% of votes in favour to 2/3 in favour. 75% is an unusually high threshold so this change would bring the Union in line with the majority of other Students' Unions.

Voting opens Tuesday 10th at 10am. More information including a detailed explanation of changes and the voting link can be found here.
