Library Technician Career
Library technicians, also known as library assistants, aid librarians in various tasks that contribute to the upkeep of public and private libraries. Such responsibilities include maintaining patron records, supervising other support staff, and addressing customer complaints. Cataloging library material is also a big part of the job as many librarians hand such duties over to their technicians.
A library technician may work in either a public or private entity. Cities, counties, and states are usually in charge of funding and overall operations in public libraries. Private libraries include those found at some universities.
