The library technician plays an important role on a library staff, occupying a position with a level of responsibility between that of a clerk and a librarian. Technicians support and assist librarians in the many services offered by libraries. They may direct the work of clerical staff, student assistants, other library technicians, and, under the direction of a librarian, may be responsible for a section or department in a library. Technicians may also be in charge of a small library.

Technicians are employed in all types of libraries: academic (college and university), public, school and special (government, business, industry, the professions, etc.). They also work in library-related jobs such as records management and information processing.
