Library Jobs

A library job should always be considered as a viable option for providing a long-term and stable career choice, one that can provide an avenue to a number of differing goals, from service rendered to the public to staking out a place in academic culture. Though library jobs are sometimes stereotypically associated with a cliché of old-fashioned, anachronistic forms of information technology such as filing cabinets and microfilm media archives, the profession of a librarian is argued by many involved in the field to be one closely linked with the cusp of emerging media technology in the digitally driven age. A library job necessitates an acquaintance and level of comfort with the proliferating array of tools being offered through online functions for the sorting of, access to and utilization of information. By offering the librarian a wide exposure to such skills, advocates for the library field argue that the holder of a library job can attain a unique and secure vantage point in the new media world. Library jobs have already been transformed greatly by the growth in Internet usage and increased sophistication in digitally based filing systems, and is predicted by today’s librarians to be facing a new slew of promising changes and innovations in the future.

Hi everyone

My name is Natalie Thomas and this is my third year pursuing Library Studies.

I hope you all are enjoying Computer Applications in Libraries as I am, if wasn’t for this course I wouldn’t have known how to create my own blog so I’m excited for weeks to come to learn more and at the end  accomplish a lot.
