The Palomar College Library and Information Technology Program provides training for
students desiring employment as library technical assistants and
retraining for those reentering the labor market.
Libraries and Learning Resource Centers are critical components of
the information age. Special training is needed in order to
organize and retrieve information. Out of this need has come the
occupational area of the library/media technician. This program
provides training in skills, attitudes, and knowledge leading to a
Library Technical Assistant Certificate which can be applied in many
occupational areas, including libraries.
