Librarians are the U.S. Intelligence Community experts in acquiring, researching, exploiting, and managing information sources. The Open Source Center is seeking Librarian applicants with a passion for innovation, customer service, and library science expertise to join the CIA Library. Our Librarians play an essential role in the intelligence mission by acquiring, researching, and making accessible the most critical information resources that meet CIA and Intelligence Community information requirements. Librarians also have opportunities to serve as embedded, or forward deployed, information experts in CIA offices and select Intelligence Community agencies. The CIA Library maintains strong relationships with the Library of Congress, other Intelligence Community libraries, select academic institutions, and other public and private sector institutions and information resource providers.

Applicants interested in a Librarian position must have strong skills in at least one area of the library science profession: research, training, briefing, technical services (acquisitions, cataloging, collection development, special collections) or customer services.

Minimum requirements include a Master's degree in Library or Information Science, excellent communications skills, strong critical thinking/analytic skills, documented knowledge and/or job experience in at least one facet of library science. Applicants with reading and research ability in a foreign language are desired.
All applicants must successfully complete a thorough medical and psychological exam, a polygraph interview and an extensive background investigation. US citizenship is required.

To be considered suitable for Agency employment, applicants must generally not have used illegal drugs within the last twelve months. The issue of illegal drug use prior to twelve months ago is carefully evaluated during the medical and security processing.

Important Notice: Friends, family, individuals, or organizations may be interested to learn that you are an applicant for or an employee of the CIA. Their interest, however, may not be benign or in your best interest. You cannot control whom they would tell. We therefore ask you to exercise discretion and good judgment in disclosing your interest in a position with the Agency. You will receive further guidance on this topic as you proceed through your CIA employment processing.

To Apply: All interested applicants must apply online at

NOTE: Individuals interested in this position are encouraged to stop by our booth at the Fall Career Fair on September 24th at the Indiana Memorial Union.

Make a note of the position(s) that interest you, as you can apply for up to four positions in one application. DO NOT submit multiple applications; this will only slow the review of your application, and delay processing. Please read the Application Instructions carefully before you begin the online application process.
