As the standards body for the library and information profession in Australia, the Australian Library and Information Association establishes the formal qualifications required as a basis for entry to the profession. It is vital therefore that the Association promote the principle that staff appointed to librarian and library technician positions hold qualifications appropriate to those positions. Where formal librarian or library technician qualifications are required for a particular position, this requirement should be articulated in the job description for the position.
