Nova Scotia Community College is at a pivotal time in our history. NSCC is on a path to 2011 to redevelop learning spaces, and launched a new Strategic Plan in 2006. Already at the forefront of education innovation in Canada, this plan uses that foundation to deliver on our goal of being a national calibre college.

Our Opportunity:  You will have the shared accountability for the delivery and evaluation of the Strait Area Campus Library services.  You will work closely with library staff and faculty to identify, plan and where required, implement methods of integrating Library Services into Campus programs to maximize added value.  You will also assist in evaluating the information needs of students and faculty, planning programs and services that address them and monitor quality of service.  You will as well conduct formal and informal user education sessions with students, faculty and staff.  You will promote the benefits of information literacy and provide reference assistance. 

Your Credentials:

·         You have a Master of Library Science/Information Science from an ALA accredited programme.

·         You have a minimum one and a half years of relevant occupational experience.

·         You have a broad understanding of the variety of information resources and bibliographic instruction concepts and techniques applicable to Community College students and faculty.

·         You possess significant computer literacy and have the ability to interact effectively with all levels of College students, faculty and staff. As a creative self-starter, you have been recognized for your strong work ethic and your commitment to excellence.

·         Experience in an academic environment would be an asset.

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.
