O que eu aprenderei?

Contrary to what you might think, public libraries are more popular than ever. Through an expansion of services to include free internet access, audio files, movies and eBooks, public libraries are moving into the future with something for everyone.

You can be a part of this future, assisting users, providing programming and planning for decades to come.

But library science is definitely not limited to your public library. This world is becoming increasingly enveloped in masses of information. Businesses' success can depend on their ability to disseminate information in a logical and timely manner. Library technicians provide this service, working across industries, government, museums, major corporations and more.

In the Library and Information Technology program, you’ll gain the skills necessary to organize and retrieve this mass of information. Using the tools of the trade, you can help clients from CEOs to preschoolers access this enormous volume of information

Library technicians play an important role in library and information management organizations. They generally hold a position of a library clerk and a librarian. Library technicians support and assist librarians in the many services offered by libraries. They may direct the work of clerical staff, student assistants, other library technicians, and under the direction of a librarian, may be responsible for a section of a department in a library. Some library technicians are in charge of small libraries entirely on their own!

Library technicians work in any environment that deals with information management. Some options to consider are:

  • Library and information technician
  • File and records clerk
  • Reference assistant and technician
  • Bookstore service personnel
  • Consultant
