Library Technical Assistant
Associate in Applied Science
The Library Technical Assistant (LIBT) is an important member of the library team. As a trained paraprofessional, the LIBT assists the librarian in a variety of areas including circulation, reference, technical processing and audio-visual services.
The Library Technical Assistant program offers courses designed for students interested in a career in all types of libraries (school, public, academic, and special libraries). The program combines lectures, hands on exercises and internships to provide the training necessary for students to succeed. The internship to be completed in the local area is to help further prepare students for their future career.
An active advisory committee of local librarians assures that course work reflects the needs of library employers in the area.
