The LTN program prepares you for a career in a variety of information environments including academic libraries, public libraries, school media centers, special libraries—corporate, correctional, law, and medical—and other information services. In rural settings, the Library/Media Technician manages the library/media center and is the person responsible for providing additional library services such as maintaining the computerized catalog and library web page, conducting patron orientation, and directing library programs.
This program offers instruction in a variety of library functions including collection management (selecting and acquiring materials); cataloging; processing and repair of library materials; circulating and shelving materials; helping patrons with reference, readers’ advisory, and resource sharing services; and managing a small library or media center. We also train you in the nontechnical skills you need to be a successful library technician: customer service; listening, speaking, and writing; attention to detail; and working as a member of a team.
