For those who wish to apply their data management skills in a wide variety of non-traditional information centers and archives, the records management concentration may be an excellent choice. Students prepare themselves for work in maintaining records, documents, and archives of any organization.
The increasing complexity and use of technology is a great reason to consider concentrating a Library Technician Diploma in this area. This concentration allows students to specialize in the organization and provision of information using computer systems. Graduates of this concentration will be qualified to work as library technicians with additional responsibilities for supervising the operation of computers and computer networks.
If your passion is about providing services for children and/or young adults, this concentration may be a fit for you! Develop a specialized understanding of information services for youth that provide you with the ability to effectively work with children and young adults.
An option within our program, including any of the above concentrations, is a cooperative education term. Put your education to work before you finish your program! Apply to become a Co-op student and build on your work experience between semesters of academic study. This option, now available to library technician students, can provide graduates of the program a very competitive edge.
Note: Students must register with the Career Centre expressing interest in being a co-operative education student. Completion of this option is dependent upon availability of co-op placements.
