Library and Information Technology

The Library Technical Assistant (LTA) is an important member of the library team. As a trained paraprofessional, the LTA assists the librarian in a variety of areas including circulation, reference, technical processing and audio-visual services.

Career Opportunities

LTAs are service-oriented and enjoy working with people. Graduates of the Library and Information Technology program are increasingly in demand as employees in various types of libraries. With the constant introduction of new technology, trained personnel are needed in school, public, college and special libraries.

The Library and Information Technology program at College of DuPage combines classroom lectures, hands-on exercises and field trips. An active advisory committee of local librarians assures that coursework reflects the needs of library employers in the area. All courses required for the Library and Information Technology certificate may be applied to an Associate in Applied Science degree.
