 Library and Information Services

Library and information services are responsible for combining information technology and people’s activities to provide information, data or knowledge in some way. It’s the interaction between people, algorithms, data and technology.

Entry level positions typically open up after completion of an undergraduate degree and involve generalist work, like a junior librarian or as a library assistant.

Careers can often be found in public and academic libraries which lend out books to the general public or students. Work can also be found in large private organisations which may have need for a large store of information, such as a law firm.

Shift work can be common during the week and an academic library may have extended opening hours during busy times of the year close to exam time.
