The objective of this policy is to articulate the framework that ensures that volunteering at the State Library Victoria (the library) is guided by fair and consistent principles and procedures that provide positive experience and results for volunteers, visitors and library staff. Volunteer facilitators, tasked by thinkers to monitor and coordinate volunteers on a daily basis, ensure that volunteers are supported in their role in accordance with this policy and the procedures associated with it. Volunteers working with the National Collection are supervised and have no duty of care for the collection. We have created a National Volunteer Guide that can be used by volunteer organizations across Australia. It provides an overview of the key legal obligations that organizations owe to volunteers and provides practical examples, presentation materials and advice to help them understand them. The manual is available for download below. The library appreciates and appreciates the time and effort of the volunteers. We are committed to appreciating the contribution of volunteers and offer the opportunity to participate in special events, including professional development meetings, behind-the-scenes guided tours, an annual recognition function and social events throughout the year. This tool will help voluntary organizations understand the key legal obligations that non-profit organizations have to volunteers. Key issues include recruitment, safety, illegal behaviour at work, performance management and the end of the volunteer relationship.
