Curate the World's Knowledge

The ability to organize and communicate information is an increasingly sought-after skill in today’s knowledge-based economy. Work BC projects that the need for library technicians will continue to increase over the next decade. UFV’s Library and Information Technology diploma program prepares you for a career where you can share your passion for helping others and using technology to find creative solutions. The Library Technician Post-diploma certificate provides career-enhancing opportunities for working professionals.

Using current technologies, our dedicated instructors prepare you to work in a dynamic industry that includes public, academic, school, and special libraries, museums, and archives. With the fast-paced growth of global data and information, many law offices, educational institutions, government agencies, professional associations, non-profits, and businesses need people with the skills to organize their information and make it accessible.

This skill set is transferable, so it can take you places; the Library and Information Technology diploma and Library Technician Post-diploma certificate qualify you to work in information centres throughout Canada and in many countries around the world.
