Library Technical Assistant

Jeannette Bruno
Department Chairperson

Every day thousands of pieces of information flood libraries. The sheer volumes of materials via the Internet, plus an increasing number of library services, have created a need for library technical assistants to aid and support librarians in providing information.  In order to help fill that need, Wilbur Wright College, one of the City Colleges of Chicago, offers a program for those interested in becoming Library Technical Assistants (LTA).   

Hybrid Courses 

The courses in the Library Technology Assistant Program require active and intensive engagement in asynchronous online discussions, completion of individual assignments and small group collaboration, as well as participation in face-to-face meetings.  Students must write English at the Freshman Composition (101) level and read at a minimum of the 12th grade level.

Classes are 16 weeks long with a Midterm and Final. There is a schedule with specific deadlines for assignments and most classes include a final project or paper. These are hybrid courses (75% online, 25% in-person) so the majority of the course takes place online, but you are also required to participate in several in-person class meetings. Lectures, assignments, questions, and discussion occur online and in-person. The online setting provides flexibility as to when and where participants study, interact with the materials, their classmates, and their instructor. The face-to-face meetings allow for more personalized opportunities to interact with course concepts as a group.
