Thanksgiving Weekend RA

Prof. Porter is looking for a research assistant to do about five hours of reference-checking over the Thanksgiving weekend. This pays the usual RA rate of $11.50/hour. Much of the work can be done on your own, but you will need to be in town to pick up some books.
Please contact Molly Eskridge at  meskridge at or 617-495-4635 if you are interested.

Check that vents are unobstructed by books, clothing, furniture, etc

Turn off electronics and shut off power strips

Unplug appliances not in power strips

Make sure all faucets are tightly turned off. Contact Facilities at 617.495.5521 to report a drip.
