Library Managers & Assistants


Library managers and assistants

Library managers and assistants can be found in a variety of sectors including education, health, schools, law, public and commercial.

In the legal and commercial sectors the job titles for these roles are usually information assistant and information manager, although some of the larger law firms do separate out law library and legal information roles.

Qualifications and experience

Library and information assistant posts usually do not require formal qualifications and some trainee or apprentice positions are available. For many people a library or information assistant role is their first job in the sector and completing a CILIP Certification whilst working can be beneficial when taking the next step in your career.

Library managers are expected to have experience working in the sector already, usually in an assistant position, or to have completed a year as a graduate trainee. Having an accredited qualification or CILIP certification or chartership is beneficial when looking for a library manager role.
