Library Technology Certificate

Students working for certificates must have a basic knowledge of arithmetic, reading and writing in order to learn and work in the occupations they select. This certificate is designed to prepare students for entry-level employment in a Library, assisting librarians to acquire, prepare, and organize material, and/or assisting users in finding information. In some cases, such as in small branch or school libraries, library technicians may perform any or all of these tasks on their own.
