What Will I Learn
Various library functions including collection management (selecting and acquiring materials); cataloging basics for Dewey and Library of Congress; 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. Non-technical skills needed to be a successful library technician: customer service, listening, speaking, and writing; attention to detail; and working as a member of a team are taught.
Obtaining the certificate or A.A.S. Degree will open the door to employment in a school media center, a public library, an academic library, or a special library. The Occupational Outlook Handbook and the Colorado Labor Market Information Gateway places the median salary for a beginning library technician/media technician at $26,330 or $12.66 per hour.
