Re: Questions about recent Job Posting Hi everyone,

Re. below, concerning this recent job posting that came on the APLA list from the Pictou County Health Authority, it raises the question as to where the heck the professional line is between the role of the professional ‘Librarian’ and the role of ‘Library Technican.’ I know this is a contentious issue for some. This posting reads like a committee seeking to fill a position that has too much work and too little pay. Just an observation.

Cheers,
Leo
