Depending on the size and specialty of a library, a librarian’s job can includes several tasks that you might not think about. It’s a massively complicated job, because you have to acquire, classify, organize, and maintain thousands upon thousands of books. A librarian is often required to provide information to the general public–basically, human Google.
