Oakland Community College

To earn the top wages and positions as a librarian, a master’s from an American Library Association accredited program is required. OCC is a great place to start; it is the only community college in the state to offer a Library Technician Associate Degree. OCC graduates often have enough experience to begin working in the field as they transfer into a university program. Courses in the program include Introduction to Media Technology; Library Technical Services-Acquisitions; Information Research Methods, and Cataloging.

The program trains students to work in the complex multimedia environment that is today’s library. Students gain knowledge of digital and print resources as well as library systems needed for obtaining resources and maintaining records. Students learn via guest speakers, tours, course work and a 15-week internship.
