Our People

Librarians

Our librarians are specialists who provide collections development, instruction, and research support for university programs and the wider King's community. Librarians all hold a master's degree in the applied disciplines of library, information or archival science, in addition to other credentials, relevant skills and experience.

 

Library Technicians

Working to give patrons a seamless experience, Library Technicians are often the first point-of-contact for library users and are here to provide circulation, reference, and access services. They have a range of backgrounds and education, and are graduates of library technician diploma programs.

Student Staff

Access to the library on evenings and weekends is only possible through the dedication of our Student Staff. They run the circulation desk and perform clerical duties, as well as take on the role of building monitor so that patrons can continue to use the space beyond the Librarians' 9 to 5. Any questions or services that are beyond the scope of what can be provided by the students will be passed along to our permanent staff as soon as they're next available, but don't hesitate to check with our Student Staff first! They're trained to help provide most circulation and research duties.
