Cuesta College’s LIBT 210: First communication

Book cover: Where Do I Start? A School Library Handbook, Santa Clara County Office of Education, Learning Multimedia Center. Cover image depicts a question-mark in the center of a maze.
Received my first official communication this week for the Cuesta College Library/Information Technology Program’s LIBT 210, “School Library/Media Center Services.”

The message emphasizes the importance of having our text, Where Do I Start? A School Library Handbook, by the first day of class.

Produced by the Learning Multimedia Center, Santa Clara County Office of Education, this is a comprehensive guide to school library/media center operations. Approximately two-thirds into the book, I find it an extremely valuable resource.

With the completion of LIBT 210 and one other class, ECE 234, “Children’s Literature,” I will complete all of the course requirements for a certificate of specialization in library service to children (this is in addition to the Associate’s degree in Library and Information Technology that I earned this spring).

Courses taken previously that apply toward certificate requirements are LIBT 101, “Introduction to Library Services,” and LIBT 218, “Connecting Adolescents with Literature and Libraries.” I’m really looking forward to this additional certification for my library qualifications.
