About Librarian

It’s a common misconception that librarians are just there to help you check out the books you want to borrow. While this can be part of the job description, the role of a librarian is a lot more complex than most people realise. And with so much information now available electronically rather than just in books, librarians have to be tech-savvy too.

Librarians have a talent for organisation and need to follow cataloguing standards to ensure that information is properly classified and archived, and easily accessible so library patrons can find what they are looking for. This cataloguing applies not only to books but includes magazines, newspapers, audio-visual material, maps, manuscripts, photographs and other archived material.

If you are thinking about becoming a librarian, there is a range of online courses available that will provide you with the skills you need. By studying library and information services, you will learn the fundamentals of librarianship, including subjects such as cataloguing and circulation, digital media, collection development and acquisitions. There are also postgraduate courses available for those who are studying at a more advanced level.

For more online, on-campus and short courses in librarianship, visit StudySelect.
