CVTC adds program for library workers
Tuesday, February 28, 2017
People with an interest or a current position working in libraries will be able to turn to Chippewa Valley Technical College (CVTC) for training starting in August 2017.
The creation of a Library and Information Services associate degree program at CVTC fills a void in higher education in Wisconsin, as there are currently no undergraduate programs in library science in the state. The program, delivered entirely online, will prepare people to work in public, academic, school, and corporate libraries for government, non-profits and private businesses.
The program will provide opportunities for professional development for current library paraprofessionals, and prepare new people desiring a career in the library and information services field, according to Jennifer Anderegg, dean of academic development and services at CVTC.
