UBC Library, Vancouver Campus

Full time, One-Year Term

Anticipated Start Date: July 1, 2019


The University of British Columbia Library is one of the largest academic libraries in Canada providing access to a collection of over 7M items. UBC Library has 14 branches and divisions on two campuses (Vancouver and Kelowna), including one off-site hospital library and the Irving K. Barber Learning Centre – a multi-purpose teaching and learning facility.

More than 300 knowledgeable employees – librarians, management and professional staff, support staff and student staff – provide users with the excellent resources and services that they need to further their research, teaching and learning. The UBC Library Strategic Plan 2015-2017 can be viewed at To learn more about working with UBC Library and to explore our aspirational values visit UBC Library – Work with us.


UBC Library’s Assessment Team helps improve the quality of UBC Library programs and the experience of library users by supporting evidence based planning throughout the library.  The Assessment & Planning Librarian leads the Assessment Team and works with library administrators and managers to coordinate assessment initiatives; improve access to existing library data; collect new data to inform Library decisions; and incorporate evidence based planning into the implementation of UBC Library’s Strategic Framework. 

Effective assessment is collaborative and depends on the curiosity and engagement of library employees who strive to understand and meet user needs.  The Assessment & Planning Librarian champions evidence based planning and helps colleagues develop expertise in practical assessment methods.  Their work moves UBC Library closer to its vision for assessment, a place where: 

  • library managers and administrators collaborate with the Assessment & Planning Librarian to answer specific questions about services and user needs;
  • existing data is accessible, presented with clarity, and used in creative new ways;
