Program Details

The Associate of Applied Science in Information Services Library Paraprofessional degree offered by Clark State Community College is in cooperation with Belmont College in order to build a more efficient Information Services Library program. This program is a response to the need for trained information specialists and library paraprofessionals who need advanced technological skills. Specifically intended for individuals who are already employed in public, academic, K-12, or other types of library or information technology organizations, this program aims to help individuals acquire a degree while maintaining their careers.

The curriculum of this program focuses on skills and knowledge required to help information seekers in defining, finding, evaluating, and using information. Professionals in this field are increasingly required to use computer and effectively present information. This program emphasizes both understanding library and information services and operations, as well as the ability to find, evaluate, organize, and present information. This program matches the skills and knowledge required by the American Library Association - Allied Professional Association (ALA-APA).

An objective of this program is to equip students with the skills and knowledge needed to learn effective team communications and collaboration and to effectively use computer software while completing an organizational project.
