Business services in librarians' future.
Librarian jobs in the business services industry are projected to grow by 87 percent between 1998 and 2008, by far the largest percent increase. Museums and botanical and zoological gardens are expected to experience a 51-percent growth rate, followed by social services at 44 percent, engineering and management services at 39 percent, and legal services at 22 percent. More moderate growth rates of 12 and 8 percent, respectively, are expected in local governments and State governments (exclusive of education and hospitals).
Education is not expected to record any growth in librarian employment, while the Federal Government is projected to have 12 percent fewer librarians in 2008 than in 1998.
