      In view of the reality that traditional libraries are changing to modern ones and the printed information environment is challenged by the networked environment, the evolution of librarian positions and required corresponding qualifications in American academic libraries is reviewed. The librarian positions and qualifications of Chinese academic libraries are examined. The structure of librarians of Chinese academic libraries is analysed. The practice of in-service training of librarians in Qian Xuesen Library is introduced and a discussion is given on the needs and means of in-service training of librarians for academic libraries.
