The Council of Academic Libraries (CAAL-CBPA) has an opening for a 6-month, full-time Project Manager position starting July 31, 2023 (open to negotiation).  The Project Manager will be responsible for:


  1. The ongoing implementation and development of the CAAL-CBPA led, regional AtlanticOER repository and service (primary focus of the position); and
  2. Leading a working group in a member-centric process to evaluate the current CAAL-CBPA website and intranet, stakeholder needs in a website and intranet, and options for a new website and intranet.


AtlanticOER consists of an online, digital publishing platform (PressbooksEDU) for the creation/adaptation of open textbooks and ancillary materials to be used in credit-bearing courses at member institutions; an OER development grants program; a peer review honoraria program; an OER Toolkit in support of OER creators; and an education/awareness program.  Please see the attached position description for more details.


This position is partially funded through the Young Canada Works Building Careers in Heritage Program, an internship program for unemployed or underemployed college or university graduates.  The specific degree program may vary given that project management transcends any one field of study, as do the specific proficiencies for this position, i.e. it is not limited to MLIS graduates.  All applicants must meet the YCW program requirements, including being between 16 and 30 years of age at the start of employment in this position; and being a Canadian citizen, permanent resident, or having refugee status in Canada (non-Canadians holding temporary work visas or awaiting permanent status are not eligible).


This is an entirely virtual position, so while being physically situated in one of the Atlantic provinces is preferable, it is not required.  To apply, applicants should send their resumé, cover letter, and the names and contact information for two references to Cynthia Holt, CAAL-CBPA Executive Director, at [log in to unmask] by July 17, 2023. Virtual interviews will follow soon after the application deadline.


Please feel free to share this posting widely within your institutions and beyond.

CAAL-CBPA represents member libraries across the region, all of whom sit on the unceded and traditional territories of First Peoples.  In Newfoundland and Labrador, our libraries sit on the homelands of the Inuit of Nunatsiavut and NunatuKavut, the Innu of Nitassinan, the Beothuk and the Mi’kmaq peoples.  In Prince Edward Island and Nova Scotia, we find our friends and colleagues situated on the territory of the Mi’kmaq.  In New Brunswick, libraries are found on the land of the Wəlastəkwiyik, Mi’kmaq, and Passamaquoddy Peoples.  We at CAAL-CBPA wish to express our sincerest gratitude to the First Peoples who share their ancestral homelands with us all.
