Ivy Tech LTA Program Receives National Recognition

Library Technical Assistant Program at the Ivy Tech Community CollegeThe American Library Association-Allied Professional Association (ALA-APA) recently announced that the Library Technical Assistant program at the Ivy Tech Community College in Indianapolis is one of three Library Assistant Training programs nationwide that will allow their graduates to receive the Library Support Staff Certification (LSSC) without having to further demonstrate their skills and knowledge.

The ALA-APA proposed these agreements after reviewing these programs’ curriculums and finding that graduates must complete courses that cover the majority of LSSC’s competency requirements. To receive the LSSC, candidates from LTA programs must have the required one year of recent library experience or meet that requirement within four years.
