Library Assistants

Library assistants assist head librarians, research assistants, and other library staff in organizing materials and helping the public find the information they need. They may work in the check out area, scanning books in and out of the library. They also may work in the shelves, pushing carts of returned and misshelved books and other material around and putting items back into their proper place. They may specialize in electronic media, helping to organize CD-ROMs, microfiches, DVDs, and other materials and make them accessible to library patrons. They also manage and update electronic databases and library Web sites.
