Career information

Librarians acquire, organise and retrieve information in whatever form it is available. They work with the government, industry and educational sectors to deliver high quality information services and content.

Records managers mainly deal with the records of private and government organisations, including information that enables an organisation to operate and to satisfy the demands of the law. Records managers are increasingly involved in all aspects of corporate information use, particularly digital records. 

Archivists usually deal with older records that have historical importance and may be publicly available to researchers and the public.
