Library and Media Specialist Jobs

You love books and bringing them to the masses, you're tech savvy, and you enjoy connecting people to the information they're seeking.

Rather than that fabled pugnacious, bespectacled lady who constantly admonishes young library patrons to “shhh,” you are an energetic, innovative person with a passion for books, technology, and multimedia. You are excited about the role of media in contemporary research trends, and you are interested in harnessing social and other types of media to gain information more quickly and efficiently. If this sounds like you, then you might want to consider a career as a librarian or media specialist in an independent school.
