Library and Information Science Instructors

Outlook

The U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) predicts that employment for library science professors will grow about as fast as the average for all careers through 2024. College enrollment is projected to grow due to an increased number of 18- to 24-year-olds, an increased number of adults returning to college, and an increased number of foreign-born students. The number of library science educators is small, and competition for full-time, tenure-track positions at four-year schools will be very strong. Library and information science professionals with the highest education will have the best opportunities in coming years.
