The Library Support Staff Certification Program Recognizes Pasadena City College Graduates

The American Library Association-Allied Professional Association (ALA-APA) has completed an agreement with the Pasadena City College (PCC) Library Technology Certificate Program that will allow PCC graduates to receive the Library Support Staff Certification (LSSC) without having to complete additional courses or portfolios.

PCC and ALA-APA believe that the LSSC will benefit graduates, the library in which they work and library users. ALA-APA Director Lorelle Swader said, “This national Certification will recognize PCC graduates for their acquired skills and knowledge. The LSSC, which is becoming a national standard, shows employers that these graduates are committed to library work and their future.” Krista Goguen, PCC’s Library Technology Program Coordinator said, “The LSSC Certification process has strengthened our program curriculum.  We are pleased to be able to offer this additional recognition of our students’ achievements.”
