What is a "professional" position?

Professional level positions in libraries include directors, department heads, and other management level positions; most positions that include "librarian" in the title (eg., children's librarians, reference librarians, teen librarians, catalogers/cataloging librarians, corporate/law/medical librarians, etc.); school library media specialists; and many more. Just because a hiring institution does not require an MLS for such positions does not mean they are not professional in nature. Positions with words such as "technician" or "assistant" or "clerk" in the job title are generally considered support staff and thus are exempt from the CLA salary guideline.
