Music Librarians


Employment for librarians is expected to grow about as fast as the average for all careers through 2028, according to the U.S. Department of Labor. A growing number of communities are using libraries' services and participating in library activities. The field of music librarians, however, is small, which means competition for jobs will be keen, particularly because there is little turnover in the best positions. Music librarians with advanced education and a knowledge of more than one foreign language will have the best employment prospects. Employment opportunities will also arise for music librarians who have a background in information science and library automation. The rapidly expanding field of information management has created a demand for qualified people to set up and maintain information systems for private industry and consulting firms. Music librarians with an advanced degree from an American Library Association accredited program and related work experience will have the best job prospects.
