Film and Video Librarians

Work Environment

Film and video librarians employed at schools or public institutions have busy, often varied days. They may be researching possible new additions to the current collection one day, and teaching library staff members how to search for titles using a new online catalog the next. Disruptions are common, as patrons and staff will often turn to the film and video librarian with questions regarding a new documentary, or where to find an old black and white classic. Librarians working at a small library may be responsible for all duties in the film and video department, from reviewing and purchasing, to cataloging and maintenance. Those employed at a larger institution may have more administrative duties such as hiring, training, and supervising departmental staff, as well as setting work schedules.
