Academic Librarian Surulere

Posted by Ms Dave Private Surulere
Job description
Academic librarians are responsible for acquiring, organizing, managing and distributing library resources, and ensuring that library provision meets the needs of all its users.
As academic librarians are responsible for providing support to academic departments, job vacancies may demand a degree that is relevant to a particular subject area.
Academic librarianship is a people-focused role, requiring individuals to manage learning resources while keeping the library users' needs in mind. Duties vary considerably according to the size of library, but typically include:
selecting, developing, cataloging and classifying library resources
answering readers' enquirers
using library systems and specialist computer applications
management of staff, including recruitment, training and/or supervision duties

ensuring that library services meet the needs of particular groups of users (eg staff, postgraduate students, disabled students)
managing budgets and resources
supporting independent research and learning
developing IT facilities
assisting readers to use computer equipment, conduct literature searches etc
promoting the library's resources to users
Depending on where you work, some travel between libraries on different campuses can be necessary.
Working hours are generally nine to five from Monday to Friday, however, some services are increasingly open during evenings, weekends and sometimes even on a 24-hour basis. Despite this, there is scope for shared work and flexible working hours.
Most academic librarians enjoy finding out more about a sector, subject area and helping others with their research. Responsibility for specific library functions or subjects is common even in basic level posts, and developing skills and expertise through increasingly specialized or advanced roles will steadily advance career prospects.
