Research Librarian Wanted

The British Columbia Securities Commission is looking for a librarian for a one-year contract. The successful applicant will assist the Commission’s lawyers, accountants and investigators by undertaking company and legal research and by making inquiries into the public record. You will publish a daily news service. You will also contribute to the maintenance of a focused collection of securities and administrative law materials. This position is ideal for a new or recent library school graduate with plans to embark on a career in either law or business librarianship. You have the curiosity as well as the initiative to thrive as a researcher in a field with which you may very well be unfamiliar: the Canadian securities industry.

You have a Master of Library and Information Studies from an ALA accredited university. Your written and verbal communication is clear. You are flexible with your priorities and work well independently as well as with team members. You are quick to learn new information sources and technologies. Completion of the Canadian Securities Course is an asset, so too is course work in the areas of law or business librarianship.
