You can get into this career by studying for a degree in librarianship or information management accredited by the Chartered Institute of Library and Information Professionals (CILIP).
If you already have a degree in another subject, you could take a postgraduate qualification in librarianship or information management.
You'll usually need some practical experience, which you could get during your first degree or by volunteering at a library.
You'll usually need:
