Technical Services in Public Libraries
Are there ever technical services positions in public libraries or do public librarians tend to cover all areas of the library? I guess what I'm asking is: How specific can you specialize in a public library? I see Youth Services or Director positions, but rarely anything more specific than that.
Secondly, any job hunting tips for public libraries? For instance, I know here in New York, you have to get on a civil service list. How does it all work if you're not applying locally?
