iSchool Student Services Lunch and Learn Workshop: School Librarianship and the CA Teacher Librarian Credential Q and A with Advisors


School librarians are teachers, librarians and instructional partners. The 31 unit California Teacher Librarian Services Credential program at the San José State University School of Information prepares students for the next step in their teaching career as a school librarian. It can be earned within the MLIS. The credential is a second credential program for students in California, who must have a California Clear Professional Teaching Credential before applying for the California Teacher Librarian Services Credential with the state. (Students in other states do not need to pursue the California Teacher Librarian Services Credential). Join the CA Teacher Librarian Services Credential Program Coordinator, Jonathan Hunt and iSchool faculty Dr. Mary Ann Harlan and Dr. David Loertscher, for a discussion of this MLIS career pathway and Q and A session.
