Reference and Instruction Librarian – Contractually-Limited Appointment
Scott Reference Department

York University Libraries seek a motivated, self-directed and public
service-oriented Librarian in the social sciences and humanities based in
the Reference Department of the Scott Library.

York University is the leading interdisciplinary research and teaching
university in Canada. York offers a modern, academic experience at the
undergraduate and graduate levels in Toronto – Canada’s most international
city. The third largest university in the country, York is host to a dynamic
academic community of 62,000 students, faculty and staff, as well as 240,000
alumni worldwide. York’s 10 Faculties and 28 research centres conduct
ambitious, ground-breaking research that is interdisciplinary and cutting
across traditional academic boundaries. 

Scott Library, the largest of York University’s libraries, houses a research
collection of over two million items in the social sciences, humanities and
fine arts, and includes government documents, data, sound and moving images,
electronic resources, archives and special collections. Along with building
collections and offering reference assistance, the Scott Library Reference
Department has an active and growing information literacy program, which
aims to enable students, faculty, and others to understand the social
context of information, to develop information-seeking behaviours that
transcend specific finding tools, and to think critically about information.
The Scott Library Reference Department also plays a leading role in the
Learning Commons which collaborates with other campus partners in providing
support for students in the development of academic literacies such as
research, writing and learning skills.
The successful candidate will be responsible for faculty liaison, collection
development and the delivery of information literacy instruction for
