Library Media Specialists
Library media specialists may work in library media centers in elementary, middle, and high schools. The library media center may be in either a public school (and, as such, part of a public school district), a private school, a parochial school, or other nonpublic school. The specific responsibilities of the library media specialist vary according to the size of the school or school district, the grade level of the students, and the extent to which the library media center has invested in new technologies. In any case, there are many facets to the job of a library media specialist. Library media specialists must act as information specialist, teacher, and instructional consultant.
