Nature and Scope of Work
Capilano University Library is seeking a creative and enthusiastic Collections and Public Services Librarian for a limited term position (Aug 17, 2020 to May 31, 2021).
This position will be responsible for managing the Library collection within a dispersed acquisitions model, overseeing the liaison purchase calendar and coordinating the collection budget. Working closely with the Technical Services Supervisor, the successful candidate will manage all library purchasing, subscription and licensing agreements, requiring a high degree of organization and an understanding of library financial practice in a post-secondary environment.
The Collections and Public Services Librarian also provides support for teaching, collections and research in the Education and Childhood Studies (Early Childhood Care and Education, Education Assistant), Access and Academic Preparation (English for Academic Purposes, Access to Work, University Success Strategies), English 100 and other courses as required. At Capilano University, we are committed to creating engaging, high-impact classroom experiences which include lesson planning, outcomes-based design, active learning techniques, and assessment. As we move forward in a remote-delivery environment, this will involve liaising closely with programs to adapt previous library information literacy opportunities while maintaining our commitment to active learning. The librarian in this position should be an engaging and confident teacher who is willing to teach a high volume of classes in first through fourth years, and to work with their liaison areas to enhance information literacy at the structural level. This position requires exemplary skills in relationship development and advocacy across a complex organization.
The successful candidate will be part of a team of eight faculty librarians who pride ourselves on our commitment to developing innovative service models, including pedagogically sound programs and resources for students and faculty. Our library operates on a collegial model and is committed to using data (quantitative and qualitative) to reflect on our practice, align the library to its users’ needs and continuously improve. This librarian will need to collaborate closely with librarian colleagues, the University Librarian, Library staff, and partners across campus. This position reports to the University Librarian.
