The day to day activities of a Librarian's job can be very different depending on what general area of the Library they work in.  There are 3 main areas of work in a Library: User Services, Technical Services and Administrative Services.  In each of these areas librarians are performing different tasks in order to connect the library user with the information and resources they want and/or need.  For example a Librarian in User Services might be answering a question a student has about a research topic by teaching them how to access the online databases and journal articles.  However, a librarian who works in the Technical Services might be creating digital records of new library resources (books, dvds, etc.) so that library users (students, faculty, staff) are able to locate the resources most relevant to their needs through the online library catalog and on the shelves in the library.
