Campus Librarian
(Continuing, Full-time Position)
(Commencing August 1, 2006 - approximate)
Annapolis Valley Campus - Lawrencetown & Middleton sites
Competition No. 2006-183

Nova Scotia Community College is at a pivotal time in our history.  The
College has launched a comprehensive development plan made possible by a
landmark investment from the Province of Nova Scotia.  As a result, our
campuses have experienced some dramatic changes.  Vibrant new learning
spaces are already filled with NSCC students enjoying the enhanced
facilities - and more excitement is coming as major construction
projects head toward the finish line.  In addition to renovating and/or
expanding several sites, NSCC, already recognized as Canada's Portfolio
College, is implementing an innovative learning-centred model. 

OUR OPPORTUNITY:  Join the NSCC Library Services team during an exciting
period of opportunity. You will have the overall accountability for the
delivery and evaluation of the Annapolis Valley Campus Library services,
which includes library services to both Lawrencetown and Middleton
sites, under the general direction and supervision of the Regional
Librarian for the Annapolis Valley.  You will play an integral role,
working closely with faculty to identify, plan and where required,
implement methods of integrating Library Services into Campus programs
to maximize added value.  You will also evaluate the information needs
of students and staff, plan programs and services that address these
needs and monitor quality of service.  You will conduct formal and
informal user education sessions.  You will continue to develop a
resource collection suitable for campus requirements, including the
digital data and map collections of the JB Hall Library, promote the
benefits of information literacy, and provide reference assistance.  You
will be responsible for overseeing Library staff at both sites.

YOUR CREDENTIALS:  You have a Master of Library Science/Information
Science (MLIS) from an ALA accredited program, an academic background in
geography, information technologies, sciences or closely related
disciplines and a minimum of one and a half years occupational
experience.  You are technology savvy, possessing advanced computer
literacy skills and are able to interact effectively with all levels of
College students and staff.  Ideally your experience is in an academic
environment and you are familiar with geospatial, geographical resources
and their application in the health, business and information
technologies sectors.  You have a broad understanding of the variety of
information resources and bibliographic instruction concepts and
techniques applicable to Community College students and staff.  As a
creative self-starter you have been recognized for your strong work
ethic and your commitment to excellence.

CULTIVATING DIVERSITY:  The College values diversity in the workplace
and strongly encourages applications from African Nova Scotians and
other members of the visible minority community, Aboriginal peoples,
persons with disabilities and women in non-traditional roles.
Applicants from these designated groups wishing to self identify may do
so in their cover letters or by filling out the attached questionnaire
on Cultivating Diversity at the end of the application process.

Application deadline is July 20, 2006 at 4 pm.  Online applications
accepted at www.nscc.ca <http://www.nscc.ca/>
