Ministry of Agriculture
A temporary (until November 16, 2012), auxiliary opportunity for an organized individual who excels in referencing and research
The Ministry of Agriculture partners with various provincial ministries and levels of government as well as First Nations, industry, government committees and non-government organizations on funding, collaboration and service delivery matters. These agencies connect in key areas such as climate change, innovation, resource management coordination, food safety and quality, commitments to First Nations, invasive plant and pest management, environmental issues and promotion of B.C. agriculture products.
Responding to the critical need for scientific and technical information to support ministry innovation and decision making, you will use your proven knowledge and understanding of library information services, standards and procedures to respond to reference and research service requests, primarily from agri-food staff, on a variety of agriculture and agri-food subjects. The range of services includes access to online journals, reference services, database searches and inter-library loans.
Highly organized and detail oriented, you are able to work independently in a virtual environment, yet still collaborate with other team members. An effective communicator with strong interpersonal skills, you network with other staff and librarians within other government libraries and maintain a current level of professional knowledge in their field of expertise. If you have the initiative and experience to undertake scholarly research work in the agriculture or applied sciences fields, we encourage your application.
