This page pertains to the Collective Agreement Collection.
The collection can be used to support career research in various ways. For example, review collective agreements to familiarize yourself with the structure and language of agreements and to compare terms of employment among institutions of interest.
When using this collection to make important decisions about careers, be sure to consult the appropriate union office to obtain the most current agreement and other supporting documents, such as Letters of Understanding. If a more recent agreement is available, please contact the responsible student librarian so the collection can be updated.
The collection can support MLIS coursework in a number of ways. Here are some examples:
- Write a paper that compares how academic freedom is protected at two universities
- Review agreements in the collection to supplement class discussions about collective agreements in libraries
- A group presentation that compares dispute resolution mechanisms in employment settings
- A group presentation that examines organizational decision making within an academic library
- Consult collective agreements for a comparative essay on faculty status between two universities
- Examine collective agreements for an essay on academic librarianship at community colleges
