Diploma in librarianship and information management
Information and knowledge is a valuable resource for both organisations and individuals, but only if it can be found. The need for excellent information resources and the ability to access them has never been greater, with an increasing recognition across government, education and business of the pivotal role they can play. The role of the professional Librarian or Information Manager is to ensure that information is acquired, organised and is accessible to the people who need it. Most roles in a library involve working with information in all its forms, increasingly with digital resources such as databases and e-publications as the job becomes more IT-oriented.
