Associate in Science degree - Library Technology
Catalog 2012-2013

This associate in science degree in library technology prepares students for employment in the dynamic field of library and information services.  The skills learned in this program may be used in public, school, academic, and corporate libraries, as well as in other positions requiring information management skills. If you like working with people, books and information, consider a career in library technology.

DVC library technology students who intend to transfer must consult with a program advisor or counselor to ensure that the requirements for transfer to four-year institutions of their choice are met.  Students who intend to transfer are advised to select either General Education Option 2 (IGETC) or Option 3 (CSU G.E.).  General Education Option 1 (DVC General Education) is appropriate for students who do not intend to transfer.

To earn the degree, students must complete each course used to meet a major requirement with a "C" grade or higher, maintain an overall GPA of 2.5 or higher in the coursework required for the major and complete all graduation requirements as listed in the catalog.  Certain courses may satisfy both major and other general education requirements; however, the units are only counted once.  With department chairperson approval, other course substitutions are possible for use in completing the program.
