Hello. I am currently searching for employment as a librarian. I have my master's in library science and practical experience working in libraries part time for several years. I got a DUI in 2007 and I am wondering how this affects my job search and how employers treat qualified candidates with a DUI on their record. Any insight?

I think it could affect your chances but won't necessarily be a barrier to your getting a job. I'm in a similar situation and I've had interviews and was hired in a part-time library position after getting a DUI & having to disclose that to employers. I think that if you get an interview & HR already knows about it then they probably won't hold it against you.
