About this Program

MCTC's Library Information Technology program will equip you with the practical and conceptual skills needed to work in highly automated libraries and information agencies. The program will cover automated library circulation, acquisitions, serials and cataloging systems, and computer applications unique to the industry. You will be trained to effectively search online databases and the Internet and provide effective user services. You will also learn about ethical and legal issues related to information use and production, and develop skills for critical thinking and moral reasoning. As part of the degree program, you will have the opportunity to take special courses dealing with alternative media and participate in a semester-long internship. The A.S. degree is designed for persons seeking careers as paraprofessionals and for anyone wishing to transfer elsewhere for a bachelor's degree. The certification programs are designed for those already working in libraries and information agencies who seek additional education and training. MCTC has pending articulation agreements with other nearby institutions.
