Who was Golda Meir?

Golda Meir (May 3, 1898 – December 8, 1978) was an Israeli teacher, kibbutznik and politician who became the fourth Prime Minister of Israel.

Meir was elected Prime Minister of Israel on March 17, 1969, after serving as Minister of Labour and Foreign Minister. Israel's first and the world's third woman to hold such an office, she was described as the "Iron Lady" of Israeli politics years before the epithet became associated with British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher. Former Prime Minister David Ben-Gurion used to call Meir "the best man in the government"; she was often portrayed as the "strong-willed, straight-talking, grey-bunned grandmother of the Jewish people."

What does she have to do with UW-Milwaukee? She moved to Milwaukee from a part of Russia that is now the Ukraine when she was a young girl, and graduated from UW-Milwaukee (then called Milwaukee State Normal School) with a degree in education. She taught in the Milwaukee Public Schools right after graduation and emigrated to Palestine (now Israel) a few years after she married.

 

Welcome

Welcome new student workers!

There are two types of student workers: "front line" staff - the ones who interact the most with UWM's students, faculty, staff, and community users and "behind-the-scenes" staff, those who are helping keep our services and facilities running smoothly.  The UWM Libraries values your hard work and good ideas.  We couldn't run the UWM Libraries without you!

This Training and Information Guide corresponds to sessions presented at the August 27th, 2013 All-Library Student Orientation Day.  Students unable to attend are encouraged to review each tab and work with your supervisor to identify other appropriate training material.

This guide is intended to be a work in progress. You are encouraged to help develop, modify, and update the information as needed to reflect current needs. This guide includes materials from each of the training session, general information useful to all student workers, and links to other sources of useful information.

If you come across anything in the guide that is incorrect, out of date, or simply something that you think should be included, please leave feedback!

Research & Instructional Support Department Interns and Field Work students may also go here for the supplemental training specific to RIS.

In addition the following table of contents is provided as a means of finding information on a topic.
