Hi Tania,

Here at the University of Toronto, you need an MLS (or ALA-accredited equivalent) to hold the title "librarian". I believe most Canadian universities are the same.

Subject: [CODE4LIB] Job Title question

Do any of you work at an institution where the job title for a position is based on their qualifications?  E.g. the person would have "librarian" in their title if they hold an MLS but have a slightly different title if they do not hold an MLS, but the job duties are the same?

I know I have seen this from time to time in job postings, and am looking for recent/current examples.
