4 Signs That a Library Science Degree is 

Right for You

When you think of a librarian, do you picture someone restocking shelves and checking out books all day? If you do, you might be surprised at the variety of jobs a librarian actually does. A library science degree is a diverse area of study that incorporates many different disciplines, including information systems and technology, research methods, statistics, and management.
Throw away your preconceived notions about librarians and you will discover that a degree in library science is more interesting and exciting than you thought. Here are four ways to know if a library science degree is right for you:

The Rich Librarian : How much do School Librarians make?

According to  PayScale.
The average Librarian in the United States can expect to rake in roughly $49K annually. Earnings for this group are mostly affected by location, followed by the specific employer and years of experience. Most enjoy medical while more than half get dental coverage. Vision coverage is also available to a little over a half. Job satisfaction is high and work is enjoyable for most Librarians. Women make up the vast majority of Librarians (81 percent) who answered the questionnaire.

What are the qualifications? you may refer to


Successfully completing a baccalaureate program is the first step to becoming a librarian,
and this level of education offers many opportunities for study. The American Library Association
 notes that students shouldn’t worry about taking library-specific courses at this level,
 but rather focus on areas that interest them most. Common degrees for future librarians
 include art, history, music, law, psychology or sociology, but it is truly up to the individual
student to decide on a course of action.
Most library science and information studies programs can be completed in two years
 if the student is able to devote themselves to full-time study. The degrees are highly
popular at traditional campuses, but recent years have also given rise to many programs
 taught purely online. This is a great option for the student who either wants to continue
working or is based in a rural setting with no suitable program near them.
Whether taught online or on campus, most master’s programs require students to complete
either a thesis or capstone project in addition to class requirements and a fieldwork placement
As part of master’s level coursework, the majority of programs require students to complete
 an internship or field placement. Students should consider this opportunity thoughtfully
and try to find a setting that offers the chance to be immersed in a specific area of interest.
Whether aspiring to work as a school librarian or in an art history library, getting a foot into
 the door of a specialized area will be of significant help when it comes time to land a job out of college.

Although licensing is mandated at the state level, it is typically only required for school librarians.
Individuals pursuing these types of roles must be certified as a teacher as they’ll regularly be
helping children learn how to use library resources.
