artvandellay: Technical Services in Public Libraries

I've got a couple questions I hope someone can help me out with:

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?
