A Career as a Librarian

Librarians specialize in the business of the collection, sorting, and safekeeping of books, and in supporting users to find what they are looking for. As a general rule, individuals entering the Faculty of Humanities are fond of books and reading. As such, many students seek to acquire a librarian qualification while studying at the university.

However, the typical year sees very few job vacancies in this area, so even after gaining qualifications, actually landing a job as a librarian can be difficult. That being said, by taking the classes required to gain qualifications as a librarian, students have the valuable opportunity to learn in detail techniques for looking up and using a variety of reference materials as well as how to organize information effectively.

Individuals interested in acquiring qualifications as a librarian would be advised to bear the foregoing in mind as they think carefully about their own academic interests and career route.
