Job Description for Librarian
A librarian can work at a public library, a school library, a university library, or a government library. Some large companies may also maintain a librarian, in order to organize documents and literature related to the company.Read More...
A bachelor’s degree in library sciences or something similar is usually necessary. Customer service skills are important in this job because visitors to the library will often have questions about research and where to find certain items. Strong computer skills are also important, so that library visitors can be helped whenever they experience issues with the library computers. A librarian will also often use computerized databases, in order to input and organize data relating to books and other materials. Organizing data includes cataloging and classifying items and documenting the circulation of these items. Card catalogs are still used in some libraries, so it is important to be familiar with this system of item organization.
A librarian should circulate the library to make sure that all of the areas are neat and organized. When making rounds, it might be needed to remind library visitors of library rules and etiquette. Stray items may have to be collected and reorganized when they are out of place. Keeping inventory on books is also a librarian’s duty. When something is missing, the librarian should contact the party who has borrowed the item. Librarians should minimize the books that are missing by making sure that library visitors are checking them out properly. (Copyright 2018 PayScale.com)
