The Librarian Program at CSULB is designed to prepare fully-qualified, outstanding librarian professionals, and emphasizes meeting the information, educational technology and reading needs of diverse populations. It offers a Teacher Librarian Services Credential. Students can also pursue a Master of Arts in Education, Option in Educational Technology and Media Leadership degree, which subsumes the credential work. The program is also approved to provide the coursework to fulfill the Special Class Authorization for Teacher Librarians, and currently offers ETEC523 to that end, via CCPE.

The state and NCATE-accredited program is based on the principles and philosophy of the American Association of School Librarians, emphasizing the information professional roles of teaching for learning, building the learning environment, and empowering learning through leadership.

The program is strongly committed to the principles of equal opportunity for diverse populations. Assignments, readings, and course objectives emphasize the importance of multicultural / multilingual programs and materials. Course delivery is provided in face-to-face and online formats to meet the needs of various communities.

Dr Lesley Farmer coordinates this program. For detailed information call 562-985-4517 or email edpac-lmt@csulb.edu
