Librarians constitute a separate professional group. In the past, to be able to work in this profession you would need to acquire academic qualification and gain required work experience.. Initially, the legislator also allowed the candidates to validate their knowledge to work in the library by passing the exam. In recent years, due to changes introduced in the law, employment entry into the libraries has changed. Due to these changes librarians have lost some of their previous employment rights. The purpose of the text is to show legal changes in the librarian’s profession. Analysing subsequent law amendments, the text illustrates the situation of librarians employed in the higher education.
