Librarians

A librarian means a person appointed by the Board of Governors of The University of British Columbia on a full-time basis as a librarian or an archivist.


General Librarian (Probationary)

Candidates for an initial appointment require at least an undergraduate degree from a university of recognized standing and a degree from an accredited school of library, archival or information science, or alternative qualifications accepted by the University for holding a professional position in the Library. Candidates may also be required to have appropriate experience and knowledge of a particular subject.

Term appointments with review are appointments for a specified term, normally for three years. Normally by the end of an appointee’s second year of continuous service in a probationary appointment, a recommendation must be made to the President by the University Librarian to grant or deny a confirmed appointment. The decision to recommend or deny a confirmed appointment may, however, be postponed until the third year of appointment with the concurrence of the appointee. An early recommendation to grant a confirmed appointment may be made if the appointee has had academic, professional, or other comparable experience before being appointed by the University.

Such positions must be advertised in accordance with UBC’s advertising policy and its advertising and recruitment guidelines.

In order to make such an appointment, please submit a Faculty Appointment Form, a copy of the signed offer letter, letters of reference and a current resume to Faculty Relations. These appointments are subject to the approval of the Provost. Please note that General Librarians have a minimum salary scale.

If the appointee is a not a citizen or permanent resident of Canada, please contact Faculty Relations for assistance.

Such appointments are eligible for pension and benefits. The appointees are members of the Faculty Association and are eligible for all negotiated salary increases (e.g. career progress, merit and performance salary adjustments). These positions are governed by the Agreement on Conditions of Appointment for Librarians.

General Librarian (Confirmed)

Candidates for confirmed appointment are judged principally on performance in their professional work. Confirmation is granted to individuals who have maintained a high standard of performance in their professional work and show promise of continuing to do so.. Recognition will be accorded to the attainment of advanced degrees in librarianship or other pertinent disciplines, and to other contributions to the University, to the profession, to scholarship and to the community as defined in Articles 4.03 and 4.04 of the Agreement on Conditions of Appointment for Faculty; however, attainments or other contributions in these areas listed cannot compensate for deficiencies in professional work.
