New Librarian Residency Award 

In 2009, the Ontario College and University Library Association (OCULA), a division of the Ontario Library Association, launched a three-year pilot residency program in Ontario for new librarians. 

The New Librarian Residency Program is the first of its kind in Canada. The program allows an awarded institution to receive $20,000 toward the funding of a contract position for a new librarian. The New Librarian Residency Award enhances the recruitment of new librarians in an academic or research environment. Over the course of the program, dozens of recent graduates have applied to residency positions, which included: Student Success Librarian, Social Media Librarian and a User Experience Librarian.
