Libraries and Learning Resource Centers are exciting places to work because of the rapid changes in technology and the key role that libraries play in their communities.  Library/media technicians are the face and the backbone of the libraries where they work. They are often the first person patrons see when they enter the library or they are the ones behind the scenes keeping systems up to date.

Library workers need special training to organize information and connect patrons with the information they need. The Palomar College LIT program provides training in skills, attitudes, and knowledge leading to a Library Technical Assistant Certificate or AS Degree which can be applied in many occupational areas, including libraries.

Earn a certificate in as little as one year. Take 100% online classes that fit your busy life. And connect with librarians and library technicians in Southern California.

Complete the required LIT coursework in any sequence. Classes are offered in Fall, Spring and Summer.
