Assessment and Technical Services Co-ordinator
Do you have an analytical mind that can detect patterns in data and find efficiencies in workflows? The Okanagan Regional Library is looking for an innovative leader for our technical services department who can also bring strong assessment skills for this hybrid role. Located in the beautiful lakeside city of Kelowna, B.C., this role serves a large regional system, stretching from Golden, in BC’s Rockies, to Osoyoos, a resort community at the border of Washington State.
About the Okanagan Regional Library (ORL)
The ORL is Canada’s 16th largest public library system, serving over 370,000 people and an area of roughly 50,000 square km. Libraries in the system have won numerous awards, and the culture of innovation and community connection throughout the ORL makes it an exciting place to work.
This hybrid role has tremendous scope for innovation, linking the oversight of technical services to an assessment role that seeks to help library staff make effective use of program feedback and statistics to drive decisions. Over the past year, the team at our Headquarters facility have worked hard to use a simplified LEAN process to streamline our workflows, decreasing time to shelf for new items by an estimated 40%, and the ability to make further gains.
We are seeking an individual who can provide great leadership and foster a team environment as the group continues to work through these changes. Our successful candidate will have a strong understanding of both technical services and assessment and data analysis.
Master's Degree from an accredited Library School or equivalent combination of education and relevant experience.
