Work at SJC

Director of Library Services

The St. Joseph’s College Library houses a 25,000-book collection, as well as academic journals and classroom resources, that is integrated with the search functions at the University of Alberta. Reporting to the Academic Dean, the incumbent will be responsible for providing library liaison services to SJC academic programs, and to participate in projects related to library services. This library serves 9 full time professors, over 15 sessionals, University of Alberta students who occupy close to 2000 seats in various courses offered by the College for credit toward a broad range of the University’s degree programs, and any student and faculty at the University of Alberta needing our collection, and community members.

This position will be attractive to a very adaptable and innovative individual with excellent communication and collaboration skills, and a user-centered focus; the successful candidate will be highly motivated to embrace new technologies and to provide services to faculty and students. This position is suited for someone at the starting stages of Library Leadership who has already demonstrated skills in the area.
