I'm not a librarian, or even a library assistant. My library experience has come from years of being an avid borrower...
However, I'm moving to a two bit country town, and the next town over is advertising for a Library Officer Level 2 - three days a week, in the Agricultural College - which provides alternative courses to Yrs 11&12 (last two years of high school) in Agriculture or Trades.
So. It's got a boarding school attached, and also local kids, and any kids from surrounding towns that don't go to the capital for Yrs 11 and 12 I guess. 16/17yr old country kids.
I've spent 12yrs as a business analyst, in software and process design. I'm pretty sure I will be fine on any IT systems, and as an analyst I'm used to managing and preparing budgets, and coordinating various documentation systems and such. I know my dewey decimal system, and I can reference with the best of them. I know a lot about project and program work.
What I don't know is... what does a high school librarian DO all day? I'll be answering to a registrar... but they aren't a librarian.
I'm assuming I'd be spending my day clearing and tidying up, updating catalogues, checking in and out and inventory management, updating the DBOR and such. Hopefully running small programs... Maybe encouraging a RPG/d&d afternoon, or a craft group or whatever. Board games ahoy! But also - I'm expected to teach how to use the library to youth - I'm cool with that - I've been a Cert 4 qualified instructor for years etc.
What else do I need to think through?
