Librarian Careers

Any business or organisation that deals with volumes of information needs to be able to store, order and access it logically and efficiently. This is the domain of the information manager.

Information management goes beyond librarianship, extending to government organisations, IT, and medical, legal, and transport and logistics businesses. Any business that deals with large archives of information needs solid information management.
