"The library technician is an important part of the library staff, occupying a position with a level of responsibility between a clerk and a librarian. Technicians support and assist librarians in the delivery of many library services. They may direct the work of clerical staff, student assistants, other library technicians, and, under the direction of a librarian, may be responsible for a section or department in a library. Technicians may also be in charge of a small library." (Guidelines for the Education of Library Technicians (PDF). 2015. Canadian Library Association. Retrieved July 20, 2015.)
