Library Faculty and Staff Absence Form

Faculty and staff should now use the appropriate, official JSU leave request form to request/record all absences (personal, sick, professional). The form can be found in your MyJaxState portal. Please complete the required information, sign it, and route the form to the appropriate individual (immediate supervisor for staff; department heads Mr. John Bruce Upchurch, Public Services, or Ms. Jodi Poe, Technical Services, for faculty) for approval. 

Colleagues should be notified of your Absence to ensure services are provided.

Accommodations should be made with the Department Head to make up leave for personal business in excess of allotted Personal Leave time. The faculty member should document the agreed dates and times in a memorandum and submit it to their Department Head.

Approval Required Prior to Absence.

See the appropriate handbook for complete details on absences:
