Keywords:employment of librarians, scope of the practice of librarianship
This contribution explores what the law says about the qualifications of the National Library of the Philippines (NLP) director. Whether the NLP director must be a licensed librarian or not is a recurring question and requires an answer based on a careful reading of the law. This article hopes to offer the answer to the question through examining whether the NLP director performs functions which the law considers as professional functions to be assumed and performed only by a licensed librarian.
