Organization

Jobs are divided into four general library categories - public, academic, school, and corporate/special. Within each category, jobs are listed in by date, with newest postings at the top. Jobs that have been on the site for less than a week have the date flagged in  red .

 

Revision Schedule

This page is updated every 1-3 business days as needed. Ads with deadlines are removed once the deadline has passed. Ads without deadlines remain listed for one month. The date the ad was posted to this site appears at the beginning of each listing. When applying for a position that has been listed on the site for several weeks, you should consider contacting the hiring institution to ensure that the position is still open.

 

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.
