Work in this sector is very varied, and needs to be broken down into three smaller categories: libraries, museums, and archives
Academic and public libraries are the most common employers of librarians but librarians can also be found in private companies, law firms, hospitals, prisons, cruise ships, newspapers, art galleries, and private collections.
These job roles are common in this sector. It is possible to specialise in one of these roles, however in smaller organisations they may all be done by one person
Archivists can be found in a wide variety of organisations
They differ from librarians in that their priority is the conservation and cataloguing of a wide number of different items
