Library Shelver Resume Samples

The basic job purpose of a Library Shelver is to organize and shelve the materials properly and in an organized manner at a library. Examples of day-to-day work activities are listed on the Library Shelver Resume as – maintaining the library materials in storage stacks for easy access to the public, following appropriate labeling and filling systems, checking materials for wear and tear; ensuring the materials are correctly placed, emptying and checking materials, answering to patron’s and management questions with regards to locating and retrieving materials; and supporting co-workers when the traffic flow is more to ensure smooth library operations.

To perform the above-mentioned duties, apart from strong physical strength, the person will also need the following skills and abilities – the ability to multitask, knowledge of proper and correct labeling techniques, communication and interpersonal skills, memorization skills, and the ability to lift and move heavy material. A high school diploma or GED is sufficient; however, work experience is accepted instead of formal education.
