What is SILS?

The Saskatchewan Information and Library Services Consortium (SILS) is comprised of all ten of Saskatchewan’s regional and municipal public library systems, plus the Provincial Library, which work together to provide seamless and consistent library services to over 300 branches. SILS maintains the core library technology infrastructure for its members. In addition to the ILS, this infrastructure includes patron-facing web and mobile applications through which our goal is to deliver a rich user experience through the dynamic integration of library collections and patron account functionality. Now is the time to join this forward-thinking organization and contribute to supporting world-class library services in Saskatchewan.

Work with stakeholders to improve services through systems refinement, enhancement, and innovation.

Develop and create recurring and on-demand reports for SILS agencies.
Collaborate with clients and colleagues to ensure timely completion of tasks, assists others when needed, and request assistance if necessary.
Monitor industry trends and best practices related to information access and discovery and recommend improvements to existing tools and workflows as appropriate.
