Library Media Specialists


The Department of Labor (DOL) predicts that opportunities for librarians, including library media specialists, should be good in the next decade. Through 2028, about 14,700 job openings will be available for librarians on an annual basis, according to the DOL. Openings will exist in school library media centers, as well as media centers in public libraries and other organizations. As the use of computers continues to spread in classrooms and in library media centers, library media specialists who have developed excellent computer skills might move into such positions as computer coordinator for the entire school or school district.
