Library technicians often work with a wide variety of people such as, clients, students, faculty, and children in the community. Although most library technicians work in public, school, or college libraries, there are many other library and information centers where you can gain employment.
Libraries can be found in:
- schools at all levels
- local communities
- law offices
- cultural and religious organizations
- publishing, software, and social media companies
For more information on possible career options, please visit library technology job announcements, Career Center, schedule an appointment with a counselor, or contact one of our faculty and staff members. Please note that you cannot meet with a counselor or staff member until you are enrolled at DVC.
