Job Details:
Position Title: Liaison Librarian – University of Guelph-Humber
Status: Full Time
Campus/Location: University of Guelph-Humber
Salary: Academic starting salaries are determined based on qualifications and years of related experience as detailed in the collective agreement for academic employees

What you will do:

The Library seeks an innovative, creative and digitally skilled full-time liaison librarian to support teaching, learning, and research for the Community Social Services, Early Childhood Studies, Business, and Psychology programs at the University of Guelph-Humber. A central part of the role is teaching information and digital literacy competencies to students based on course learning outcomes and in consultation with instructors, with the goal of integrating and scaffolding content throughout the curricula. With a focus on active learning and student engagement, the Librarian uses teaching methods and develops learning objects grounded in the Universal Design for Learning framework. Teaching modalities may range from in-person synchronous learning to hybrid and online asynchronous modules.

Together with the Manager, Learning Services, the Librarian leads the University of Guelph-Humber research help team, providing training for staff and coordinating service delivery. The Librarian participates in research help services, assisting students, faculty, and staff with accessing and using library resources via in-person, video, and chat/text (Ask A Librarian) service points. The incumbent accommodates individual and small group consultations with students and faculty who require research assistance. Developing and maintaining collections in all formats in the assigned liaison area is also part of the role. The Librarian coordinates academic honesty and citation initiatives, creating learning supports as needed. Program and course reviews, curriculum development support, and participation in scholarly communication activities are integral to the position. The Librarian builds relationships with faculty and administrators to facilitate awareness of library services and to learn about library-related needs and opportunities for collaboration. Working with the librarian and library administrative teams, the incumbent participates in service delivery and content development outside their liaison areas to support students’ academic success (e.g. library orientations). The Librarian shapes their teaching, collections and research help practices using the core values of equity, diversity, and inclusion throughout.

What you bring to the role:

The successful candidate will possess a Master’s Degree in Library Science or Information Studies from an American Library Association accredited institution.

Experience and Skills:
Advanced knowledge of information and digital literacy skill development in post-secondary education is essential. At least three years professional experience delivering information literacy and research help services as an academic liaison is strongly desired. Experience with data reference is required. An undergraduate degree in a related subject area would be a strong asset, as would experience with learning management systems, creating interactive content (e.g. using H5P), video platforms (e.g. Zoom, Microsoft Teams), and/or Adobe Rush. Additional qualifications include: technological aptitude; excellent analytical, verbal and written communication skills; strong problem solving, advocacy, project management, relationship building and interpersonal skills; a proven commitment to customer experience and to working in a collaborative and collegial team environment; the demonstrated ability to multi-task a variety of responsibilities and projects, and adaptability within a variety of professional contexts.

What’s In it for you?

• An opportunity to have an impact with a post-secondary institution, poised to do great things.
• Diverse, hard-working, committed team of people who care about each other.
• Tools and technology that will allow you to succeed at your job.
• Amazing perks
• Highly supportive work culture
