Certificate in Library Instruction

This certificate program is designed to provide a strong grounding in professional practice as an instruction librarian in an academic library setting. It consists of a set of required and elective courses. The four required courses are the most general, while the electives are focused on topics that are helpful in different types of instruction programs.

Of course, these courses work as standalone courses as well, and need not be taken towards a certificate. For the certificate, the courses may be taken in any order; none have prerequisites. If you have previously taken any of the courses below and want them to count towards the certificate, let us know and we will maintain a record for you.
