The U.S. Department of Labor reports that employment for librarians will grow by only 7 percent through 2022 (or slower than the average for all careers). Librarians who work in research and special libraries will have more job opportunities, however, due to the increased availability of electronic information. Individuals trained to catalog and organize medical information will be in steady demand. Employment prospects will also improve in the coming years as older librarians retire and population growth triggers job openings. Medical librarians with advanced degrees in science or related fields will have the best job prospects.
