A library technical assistant is a paraprofessional that helps librarians in their daily activity. Their main responsibility is collaborating with the library staff and the library users for improving library services and developing the library potential. Working under the supervision of a librarian, they don't need special education in the field. Usually, on-the-job training is sufficient, and, therefore, library technical assistants with some work experience have more chances of being employed.

Library technical assistants can work in small libraries and perform a range of duties, or in large libraries and specialize in certain library activities. Whatever the case, library technical assistants need to know how to manage library material to organize, prepare and even acquire materials and introduce them in special databases. They need to be able to direct the users in locating resources and utilize physical and electronic catalogues. As libraries become more evolved and incorporate modern technology, library technical assistants have to be able to work with computerized systems.

The resume of a library technical assistant is a classic form resume that includes knowledge and education, skills and experience related to the field in which the incumbent wants to work - in this case, library professions.
