Abstract: The paper examines the employment opportunities trend in the library and information science profession based on job advertisements published in Employment News. Data for the analysis pertained to the years 1980, 1990, 2000, 2010 and 2019. The study reflects the impact of ICT on various aspects of vacancies advertised in libraries such as designation, required qualifications, experience, skills and competencies. It is found that there have been significant changes over the years in the required ICT related qualifications and skills. In most of the job vacancies, the recruiters are looking for candidates who have sound knowledge of information technology. It is also found that with the ICT implementation, more vacancies are published in Employment News in the field of library and information science.
