A librarian degree will equip you with the skills you need to work with large volumes of information. Depending on your area of interest and desired career path, you can choose a library science course that specialises in information and knowledge management, librarianship or records and archive management. Best of all, if you want to become a librarian in Australia, you can choose to study many librarian courses online.
Whether you’re just starting off, wanting to further your library studies career or looking to become a teacher librarian, there’s a course for you. Many of the qualifications, such as the Master of Information Studies course and the Bachelor of Information Studies course, are also accredited by ALIA (Australian Library and Information Association).
The old-fashioned image of librarians as bespectacled, fusty old women in cardigans bears no resemblance to the librarian of the twenty-first century. Today’s librarians are young and old, male and female, IT savvy, and people oriented.
Information studies covers it all, from records management and data management to knowledge management and organising company info, as well as of course libraries. See how a course in information studies can help you play a key role in your community.
