Medical Librarians

Work Environment

Medical librarians must do a considerable amount of sitting and reading to keep informed in order to serve library patrons. They must also spend a lot of time staying up to date with constantly changing technology. Some medical librarians may find the work demanding and stressful when they deal with users who are working under deadline pressure. Medical librarians working in technical services may suffer eyestrain and headaches from working long hours in front of a computer screen. Overall, medical libraries, like other libraries, are quiet, well-lit, pleasant, and comfortable places to work.
