Employment Opportunities

We offer multiple employment and volunteer opportunities including:

Student Assistants

Student Assistants work at the Information Services Desks across the Queen's University Library system and provide a wide range of services; they answer basic questions, refer students to the learning services that meet their needs, and provide technical help with Library computers. Student Assistants also offer several workshops throughout the year, such as Excel and Power Point.  Hiring for QLC Student Assistants takes place in March and on occasion during the year.
