I went through school to be a library technician. When I told people, they were like "you have to go to school for that?"
What.
Yes. Yes you do. It isn't easy. At all. :/ I have no idea why people think it is.

I've been working in a book store for the past two and a half years and the amount of sheer dumbassery that I hear on a weekly basis is incredible. This stamp calls to my soul!

I think my favorite was the time I told these loud girls at the next table to be quiet, and she said if I didn't shut up she'd tell the librarian on me being loud.
and then we got into an argument over what a librarian's job was, and then I bust up laughing because the librarians knew me by name and face, same way I kenw them...and they knew I wouldn't be loud in a library.

It's exhausting. I used to work at the one in my college and mind you, this was during the H1N1 pandemic. I had to sanitize a lot of things when I was shelf reading the codes or getting books back to the proper areas.

I worked there for half an hour to get CAS points (don't ask; it's a bitch to explain), all I did was fixing headphones with hot glue. Our library isn't that big but we get new books every month. I tried checking out books. It was fun. But yeah all the shit you had to do in the library. :iconwthplz:

I did this voulenteer thing for a library where little kids would tell me about the books they were reading and then I'd give them a sticker. People would mistake me for actual librry staff, even though I had a badge that said "VOULENTEER"

One lady said to me: "Help, the computer is bouncing"

I had a look to see the computer popping up multiple command prompt windows.

I'm coming up on my 5th year anniversary as at a page position, but they trained me on everything so when we get short staffed I jump in everywhere. lol. It gets insane sometimes. And the people looking for 'Adult Content' (<-- to be politically correct) is somewhat humorous...

It's all fun and games till you stumble upon clothing on the ground and two people going at it in the back aisle of the upstairs reference area ^^

Man, I worked in the library's computer lab... The times I caught dudes (why is it almost always dudes?) looking at porn were staggering and really sad. Plus the technical issues.

ALL THOSE FUCKING BOOKS. Sorting them... would take so long...
Oh, and let's not forget the "I want to borrow a book from (insert huge series name here)." "There's about (enter large number here) people in front of you..." "BUT I WANT IT NOOOOOOOOOOOOOW."
-_- I don't work at a library. But I've talked to enough librarians to know it's not as easy as scanning a book and saying "Have a nice day!"

Sorting (as in, moving books from one shelf to another, there's a difference), shelving, blocking, shelf reading, reserving, pulling books for relabeling, and all sorts of other errors (such as someone fucking up and not checking in a set of books properly) and such :stare:
Sorting can take up to an hour, at least 20 mins.
Shelving can take up to an hour, at least 30 mins.
Blocking can take half an hour.
Shelf reading can take anywhere from 20 to 45 minutes if you're still pulling books for relabeling.
Reserving can take half an hour (finding out if the book is in the library, finding it, and actually putting it on reserve)
Relabeling (40 books) can take 45 mins to an hour.

Look, I'm not saying that there aren't harder jobs, there are. But working at a library is not a walk in the park. You're customer service, a cashier, a librarian, a tour guide (because I work on college campus), along with other school related stuff given what sort of library I work at.

And depending when I work, I have other tasks. Getting the mail, opening up tasks (turn on lights, check the counter, check dehumidifiers) and closing shifts (turn everything off, sanitize everything, check the recycle bins as a part of a survey and sort them from the trash, empty dehumidifiers). Then you get phone calls from staff students and anyone else:
"How do you site this book?"
"When do you close?"
"when does *insert meeting* occur and where?"
"What's the password to GALILEO?" (or to other websites and email)

Some of them make you think did they listen at all when the information was given out :stare:

And guess what? Having a stack of books fall on you is often very painful for the toes. And I don't wear open toe shoes.

Lol, perfect summary, there's a few more tasks that we do at Public Libraries that differs from what you do. Though there were a few things that, because you're on a campus library, that we don't have to deal with. Thankfully XD

ive worked in a library before as well as assisted my mom who is a librarian
do you work at a branch or headquarters? id understand working at the headquarters being more difficult than what i did
Reply
:iconjotepaine:
JotePaine Featured By Owner Feb 26, 2012
I am unsure of the difference, but I know that it is larger than a public library considering I work at a university library. Though I have seen larger still (the one I work at is only one floor, I have been to one that's at least 6 floors, so I guess that's a headquarters one and I'd be at a branch one).
Though this is mostly for those who say that "oh, being a librarian is the easiest thing you can do..." when clearly it's work like anything else and that there are some jobs that are easier than others.

sorry i said it wrong, what i meant is its not hard when you enjoy it
i know my mom refused a promotion because she wold be working with numbers instead of actual books which she enjoys

if im quoting it right "works not work when you enjoy it"

Partly true. It's still work, but you enjoy it better. It's not that I don't enjoy it, it's better than working at other places where I know for FWS but I would prefer a different job. I only picked the library because I knew I enjoyed reading...

Assist is different from actually working there. It's not your full-time job. I've assisted in a lot of things and found them easy, even enjoyable, but I don't know what it's like to work FULL TIME at it.

There's a difference in the two.
