Belmont College and Clark State Community College agree to cooperate in correlating their respective programs for the purpose of providing the Associate of Applied Science degree in Information Services: Library Paraprofessional. This formal arrangement permits Clark State students to benefit in order to pursue library paraprofessional training from Belmont College.
In an information-driven age, there is a definite need for trained information specialists and library paraprofessionals who possess advanced technological skills. This degree provides an array of skill sets that are applicable to many career fields.
This specialty is intended for those interested in employment or already employed in public, academic, K-12, or other type of library or information technology organization. The program is designed to accommodate part-time distance education students. Studies focus on the skills needed to assist information seekers in defining, finding, evaluating and using information. Libraries increasingly need employees who can use computers effectively and present information - especially on the web, as part of patron training, or in professionally developed brochures, and flyers. This specialty focuses on understanding library and information services and operations; finding, evaluating, organizing and presenting information; and preparing information for presentation.
