Description

ALIA 1997 Library Technician Dunn & Wilson Scholarship, Lorraine Denny LibT ALIATec
 
This study was made possible through the Dunn & Wilson Scholarship and supported by the Australian Library & Information Association (ALIA), with sponsorship from LJ Cullen Bookbinders NSW, and Apollo-Moon Bookbinders Victoria.
 
This research project focused on examining job descriptions from an organisational perspective. The objectives of the project were to:

  • determine the current practice of the role of job descriptions in Australian libraries, using Library Technicians as a sample group;
  • collate examples of Library Technician job descriptions to determine the type of information contained in them;
  • identify best practice in the design, content and uses of job descriptions; and
  • present recommendations to the library profession which would aid them in developing effective job descriptions that are current, relevant, accurate and useful.
