Through its participation in The Partnership of provincial and territorial library associations, BCLA provides an important service for the benefit of members by maintaining a website listing employment opportunities in libraries and related fields. This service is provided through:

The Partnership Job Board ( – a listing of positions available in the library and information sector in Canada.

Email Notification service – an automated e-mail of new postings from the Partnership Job Board.

The following guidelines apply to all postings:

  1. Postings are $55 per two-week posting for employers who are members of one of the Provincial or Territorial Associations in the Partnership. Non-members will be charged $85 for each two-week posting.
  2. Employers are encouraged when posting job opportunities to ensure that the position requirements reflect the position description.
  3. The Association reserves the rights to refuse listings for any reason.

To submit a posting:
Employment opportunities must be posted by going to the Partnership Job Board at Postings to the Job Board will automatically be forwarded to the Email Notification Service.

The application of these guidelines is the responsibility of the Executive Director.
