Do I have to be a U of S student in order to be hired at the Library?
No. The Library hires full-time U of S students and students of Saskatchewan Polytechnic's Library and Information Technology program for student positions.
How many classes do I have to take in order to be eligible for employment?
U of S students need to take a minimum of 18 credit units (6 three credit unit classes or 3 six credit classes) during the Regular Session, or be registered as a full time graduate student.
Do I need to take my application to each library location that I wish to work at, or can I drop it off somewhere for it to be circulated to each location?
You may either hand deliver a copy of your application to each library location where you want to work at or apply online.
Can I still apply for a position if I will only be registered as a full time student for 1 term instead of the whole year?
Yes. However, you will only be employed for the period that you are a full time student.
How many student positions are there in total (all of the library locations)?
In total, the Library hires approximately 70 students during the Regular Session. During the summer, the Library requires 10-15 new students as most of our summer positions are filled by students who have worked for the Library in the Regular Session.
If I am hired in one Library branch, can I also work in another Library branch?
If I work at the Library, can I work for another U of S department or college?
Yes, you can work elsewhere in addition to the Library. However, we must ensure that you do not work more than 7 hours per day or 80 hours per month, at all U of S jobs combined.
Where do I go to find out the status of my application and who should I talk to?
Due to the large number of applications we receive, please do not contact us to check on the status of your application. Only those who will be interviewed will be contacted. If you are successful at obtaining a position you will be contacted by telephone.
