The school library is often considered the center of the academic universe. No longer a place of silent reading and study, today’s school library is a vibrant, collaborative environment. A modern media specialist is the gatekeeper to a literal world of knowledge in various forms, both tangible and digital.
Lindenwood University's Integrated School Library Media and Technology Graduate Certificate focuses on both the daily administration of a successful library program and the big picture of the future-ready library standards. Each course is specifically designed to deliver relevant, meaningful learning experiences that culminate in a well-prepared library candidate who is ready to lead from the library in any school.
The 18-hour (three semester) Integrated School Library Media and Technology Graduate Certificate is available fully online and as a standalone certificate or as an emphasis in the MAE program. The certificate includes the four core library courses and two additional classes to provide a solid and dynamic foundation of skills and knowledge for future school librarians.
