Masters degrees in Librarianship train postgraduates in the creation and management of the various information systems used by a modern library. Often vocational in nature, these Masters will help you develop the skills to begin or continue a career in many kinds of library.
Some courses may ask for prior work experience in a library, but this isn’t always the case. Other postgraduate specialisms include Information Management, Library Management and Library Studies.
Becoming a librarian is the obvious route to take after finishing a Masters in Library Studies, but it’s by no means the only option available to you.
By the end of the course, you’ll be demonstrably information literate, a valuable trait in the era of the information economy. Organisations in almost every sector look for people who are adept at designing, creating and maintaining the systems needed to manage ever-larger quantities of data and information. You’ll benefit from a combination of practical and theoretical study, giving you a well-rounded overview of the modern library and its importance.
If you already work in a library, a Masters in Librarianship represents a great opportunity for career development.
