Possibly the most important investment in any community is with the local library. WMCC has created a one-year program to provide continuing education to those working in libraries or who are training to enter the field as a paraprofessional. Courses will cover all aspects of library work including circulation, reference, and technical services.
The Library Technology Certificate is designed to provide training for paraprofessionals entering the field and continuing education to those already employed. Library technicians and library assistants work in all types of libraries and information centers including public libraries, academic libraries, school libraries, and special libraries. Program courses prepare students for all aspects of library work: circulation, reference, and technical services, with an emphasis on current and emergent technologies. A field placement translates the classroom work to practical experience.
Program only available online.
