SAIT Library is undergoing staffing changes this summer

Our long serving Access Services Librarian, Dave Weber, retired in late June after almost thirty years of service at the Library. Dave began his career with SAIT Library as a reference librarian in 1988, and became Access Services Librarian in 1999. Dave also served for 6 years as a member of the SAIT Academic Faculty Association (SAFA) executive board. Dave was well known around campus and within the Alberta library community and will be missed.

As a result of growing information literacy needs on campus, we are hiring a full time, permanent Instruction Librarian. This position will also serve as a liaison to one of SAIT’s schools and will work on other projects depending on skills and interest. The deadline for applications is July 27th. All applications should be made through SAIT’s online system.
