the team-based learning organization.

sciences disciplines; demonstrated leadership qualities; ability to

motivate and mentor public services staff to work as a team; proven
superior verbal, interpersonal and written communication skills;
excellent organizational skills; proactive, enterprising, and

a self-directed environment.


ENVIRONMENT:  The Bracken Health Sciences Library serves the teaching
and research needs of the undergraduates, graduates, faculty and
researchers in the Faculty of Health Sciences, which includes the
School of Medicine, the School of Nursing and the School of
Rehabilitation Therapy. In addition, the Bracken Health Sciences
Library serves as the primary library for students, graduates,
faculty and researchers in the Life Sciences departments at Queen's.
Through formal partnerships, Bracken also provides outreach library
services to a number of regional health institutions including the
Hotel Dieu Hospital, Kingston General Hospital, Northumberland Hills
Hospital and Quinte Health Care and their affiliated health
professionals. Bracken Health Sciences Library is a full service
library, responsible for administering the full range of library
functions, including all technical services, information, reference
and education services, and document delivery. Services are provided
by 8 librarians and 11 technicians in the context of a consultative
team-based organizational model. In September 2005 Bracken Library
was renovated to create the Centre for Health Electronic Education
Resources (CHEER). CHEER is a fully integrated, interactive
electronic education centre, which occupies the whole public area on
the main floor of the library. It includes an electronic classroom,
six large group seminar rooms and a number of group meeting spaces,
videoconferencing facilities, computer pods, user-friendly reference,
circulation and document delivery service points as well as librarian
office space. The entire environment is wireless to allow students
and faculty to use laptop computers, tablets or portable computing
devices anywhere within the facility.

Queen's University Library comprises five major libraries in
well-equipped facilities. It serves a user community of approximately
18,000 students and 800 faculty with research collections exceeding 7
million items, access to about 16,000 electronic journals and 400
databases, a staff of 160 and a budget exceeding $17 million. A
team-based organization based on the goals of the learning
organization was introduced in 1999 to encourage innovation and
flexibility in meeting the service needs of the Library's users.

SALARY AND BENEFITS: Librarians are members of the Faculty
Association and terms and conditions of work are governed by the
collective agreement between the Association and the University which
is posted at <http://www.queensu.ca/qufa>http://www.queensu.ca/qufa

of   Associate Librarian or higher.  Salary and rank will be
commensurate with qualifications and experience. (2007/08 minimum
salary for an Associate Librarian is $60,478.)  This is a continuing
track appointment, available immediately.)

The University invites applications from all qualified
individuals.  Queen's University is committed to employment equity
and diversity in the workplace and welcomes applications from women,
visible minorities, aboriginal people, persons with disabilities, and
