Library and Information Services


Program Description

Are you looking for a high-tech career that is fast paced, and involves working with people? As libraries increasingly use new technologies the duties of library and information services (LIS) specialists will expand and evolve accordingly. LIS specialists assist with customizing databases and instruct patrons in how to use computer systems to access data. These specialists work in large libraries as well as in rural areas.

In cooperation with the Nebraska Library Commission, and the University of Nebraska at Omaha (UNO), Central Community College (CCC) offers two options for students: a certificate program in Library and Information Services and an Associate of Arts degree which students can complete in as little as two years. The LIBR courses in the certificate program are designed to provide the skills necessary for certification as a public librarian in Nebraska, with an emphasis on rural needs. The AA degree option provides an opportunity for students to transfer to UNO for completion of a baccalaureate degree if they choose.

The Library and Information Services certificate courses and the AA degree are offered entirely online by CCC. Central's advisors can assist students in enrollment for these courses.

The Library and Information Services program will provide information about services requiring technical skills in such vital areas as circulation of materials, acquisition, and processing of all types of materials. The program's courses focus particularly on information resources and management of a small library.

Student Learning Outcomes

In as little as two years, graduates from this program will be able to provide services requiring technical skills in vital areas such as:

  • Circulation of materials
  • Acquisition and processing of all types of materials, print and electronic
  • Budget and planning
  • Collection development
