Library Technical Assistant Diplomas AvailablePosted in Learn Something on August 14, 2008 by Nancy
The Library Technical Assistant program at Northampton Community College prepares you to enter the workforce as a paraprofessional capable of employment in a variety of libraries and information centers. All courses are offered online and are available to anyone across the state.
The program’s courses focus particularly on information resources, services for children and management of a small public library. Technical skills in such vital areas as acquisitions, electronic formats and cataloging of all types of materials are addressed. Students in this program are required to perform online research, and visit libraries to investigate print resources and explore types of library services, in addition to reading assigned textbooks.
Although courses can be taken on an as-needed basis to improve skills in specific areas, a specialized diploma is awarded upon completion of 15 LTA credits. Northampton’s Library Technical Assistant courses can be applied toward the Pennsylvania Department of Education certification program for public library assistants and provisional librarians.
Register today! The new semester begins August 25.
