Keywords:librarian functional positions, career development, policy implementation
AbstractThe government has issued career development policies since 1988, until the issuance of Permenpan-RB Number 9 of 2014, but implementation of Permenpan-RB Number 9 of 2014 still leaves some challenges. The objectives ofÂ this study are:Â (1)Â to explain theÂ implementation of Permenpan-RB NumberÂ 9Â ofÂ 2014Â atÂ MalangÂ StateÂ UniversityÂ (UM);Â andÂ (2)Â knowing the supporting and inhibiting factors. This study usesÂ descriptive qualitative methods. Data collection techniquesÂ used in this study were interviews, observation, and documentation. The data analysis used in this study is theÂ Miles,Â Huberman and SaldanaÂ analysis models. Research findings:Â (1)Â theÂ reluctanceÂ ofÂ aÂ smallÂ numberÂ ofÂ librariansÂ toÂ takeÂ partÂ inÂ theÂ librarianship competency test and carry out professional development activities, (2) the placement of general functional personnel who do not have competence in the library sector to carry out librarians activities due to the lack of librarians and (3) submission cancellations promotion of UM librarians to Main Librarian Position due to limitation of librarianship career paths to positions of middle librarians at Kemenristekdikti. The inhibiting factors for the implementation of Permenpan-RB Number 9 of 2014 in UM are (1) the lack of responsiveness of the Kemenristekdikti in processing proposals for promotion/rank of librarians, and (2) the limited number of competent civil servants to follow in passing the position of librarians. The implementation of Permenpan-RB Number 9 of 2014 in MUs has not been going well, therefore, a fast response from both librarians and UM leaders is needed to minimize the gap.
