(NOC 5211)


These comments are for the career grouping of Technical Occupations in Libraries, Archives, Museums and Art Galleries, which includes Library Technicians.

Job opportunities will be available primarily as a result of positions left vacant by retiring library and archive technicians and assistants and those who leave the profession. The training and experience of members of this occupation allows them to have access to positions in a number of information-related occupations, as researchers, multimedia product or Internet and intranet site designers, etc. In addition, several types of technicians with the required training can fill librarian positions (NOC 5111). Some opportunities will come from employment increase.

The slowdown of employment growth is related to the limited demand for technical occupations in libraries, archives, museums and galleries consequent to the emergence of new information technologies and the widespread use of the Internet.
