Reference Librarian, Leslie Frost Library

York University Libraries invite applications for the position of a fluently 
bilingual (French and English) reference librarian in the Leslie Frost Library. The 
Libraries seek an energetic, service oriented person with strong instructional, 
web and data skills. 

York University offers a world-class, modern, interdisciplinary academic 
experience in Toronto, Canada’s most multicultural city.  York is at the centre 
of innovation, with a thriving community of almost 60,000 faculty, staff, and 
students who challenge the ordinary and deliver the unexpected.  The bilingual 
Glendon University College offers courses in the social sciences, humanities 
and international affairs, and graduate programs in French, Hispanic Studies, 
Public Affairs and Translation. 

York University Libraries consist of a large central library and three branch 
libraries, one of which is the Leslie Frost Library on the Glendon campus.  The 
Frost Library serves a population of approximately 2,800 students and faculty. 

The chosen candidate will provide reference assistance in the social sciences 
and humanities to undergraduates, graduate students, and faculty; instruct 
library users individually and in groups; provide research support in the use of 
data; liaise with faculty members; participate in collections development and 
maintenance, particularly for government publications; participate in the 
creation and maintenance of web based resources for research and learning; 
participate in departmental working groups and committees of the Libraries 
and of the University; contribute to librarianship and scholarship by carrying 
out professional research and/or scholarly work.  Some evening and weekend 
work is required. 

The successful candidate will have the following qualifications:
•	An ALA-accredited MLIS or equivalent with a graduation date of 
2006 or later.
•	Educational background in the social sciences or humanities.
•	Strong written and oral communication skills in both French and 
English, including demonstrated skills in teaching, training, and public 
communications.
•	Demonstrated ability to provide excellent reference service.
•	Expertise with statistics, data resources, and statistical software 
packages.
•	Demonstrated ability to manage and support the use of government 
publications.
•	A strong public service ethic and/or background.
•	Demonstrated understanding of the concepts, goals, and methods of 
information literacy instruction and ability to teach in a variety of settings and 
formats.
•	Familiarity with the trends of technology in teaching and 
librarianship. 
•	Evidence of professional initiative and leadership.
•	Demonstrated ability to work effectively and diplomatically with a 
diverse population of faculty, librarians, staff, and students.
•	Interest in university committee work, research, and professional 
development.

This position is a tenure-stream appointment to be filled at the Assistant 
Librarian level and appropriate for a librarian with up to four years’ post-MLIS 
experience.  Librarians at York University have academic status and are
