UBC iSchool (SLAIS) Co-op Students Available for Fall or Winter Work Terms

Students from the UBC iSchool (School of Library, Archival and Information Studies) are still available for Fall co-op work terms (September-December). We’re also starting to post positions for the Winter term (January-April), and some of our students are available for full-time or part-time 8 month work terms spanning September-April.

Educated in one of Canada’s leading schools for information professionals, UBC iSchool students are equipped with the latest knowledge for obtaining and managing information in an increasingly complex world. Students learning the latest in library, information management, and archival fields can be an ideal fit for that special project or short-term vacancy you’ve been looking to fill.

Types of Work UBC iSchool Students Perform:

  • Archives & Preservation of Information
  • Records Management
  • Library & Information Services
  • Data Discovery & Wrangling
  • Information Systems Management
  • Information Policy
  • Information Analysis & Retrieval
  • Research

To assist you throughout the hiring process, the UBC Arts Co-op Program can help with drafting job descriptions, determining salary, coordinating interview scheduling, making offers, and monitoring student success during the co-op term.

Upcoming Event: Out of the Stacks

Out of the Stacks is thrilled to extend an invitation to all library and information professionals in the Lower Mainland to attend our inaugural social meet  on June 23rd.

Out of the Stacks is an informal networking group of information professionals created in April 2016 to foster connections and build community in BC's Lower Mainland. Our aim is to organize and sponsor fun social gatherings in Vancouver open to information professionals of all ilks, and create a space for those working in the library and information sector to get together and form new connections outside of the workplace.
