Why do #librarians need a master’s of library science degree? What do they learn during their coursework?


The answer to “Why” is “Because humans only respect knowledge that is paid for and comes with a degree, and experience that can be quantified.”
Most placement agencies or corporate HR departments have no idea at all about what a librarian does. They think it has something to do with shelving books or something. When the hiring manager requires a Master’s Degree, HR can do the basic stuff of their job – cut out people without qualification from consideration and pass the rest along for consideration. It’s up to the hiring manager to find someone who knows the difference between Integrity and Citeline.
