The Chief Librarian is the strongest and most psychically attuned Librarian of a Space Marine Chapter.[1]

He is master of the Librarium and has full access to otherwise restricted parts of it that house the Chapter's most powerful and dangerous relics. His century-long studies and experience, gathered on thousands of battlefields, makes him a crucial advisor to his Chapter and its commanders.[3]

Chief Librarians often lead forces or assist the Chapter Master in battle while other Librarians aid company Captains. He also holds the overall responsibility for communications as well as scrutinizes battle reports to provide recommendations for honour awards.[2]
