Managing grants to 48 county and bar association libraries across Ontario, LIRN is responsible for an evidence-based finance and resource allocation process that is responsive to changing models of service delivery given the current operating environment and technology opportunities. With a newly appointed Managing Director, LIRN is currently seeking a Library Statistics Analyst to join the team on a part time term basis.
Reporting to the Managing Director, the Library Statistics Analyst’s primary responsibility is to collect, interpret and report on library and collection usage statistics for libraries within the LIRN network. These statistics will be the basis for evidence-based strategic decision-making regarding modernization of the county courthouse library collections, online subscriptions, and network organization.

A clear communicator both written and orally, the ability to work independently and collaboratively will be imperative in establishing good working relationships with LIRNs stakeholders and its users.
