Cañada College Receives HSI Grant

Saturday, July 28th, 2012

As part of a four year HSI Grant, Cañada College is hiring a friendly, supportive, and preferably bilingual English/Spanish librarian. The job will either include working as a regular ref/instructional librarian or doing the specific tasks mentioned in the HSI grant (helping students transition from lower division research to more advanced skills and working with targeted instructors on related issues) or, more likely a combination of both. If you are interested, please contact David Patterson at

For more information on the grant, please read the following article:
