iSchool Student Services: Lunch and Learn Youth Services MLIS Pathway Q and A with Advisors


The Youth Services MLIS career pathway is designed to prepare students for positions as children’s and/or young adult (YA) librarians or coordinators in public libraries, youth specialists on a regional or state level, or as information professionals in organizations principally serving youth, as well as to offer library generalists appropriate coursework to prepare for serving a public that includes youth. The Youth Services pathway is one of the most popular pathways in the MLIS program. Join iSchool’s Youth Services faculty advisors for a lively discussion about preparation for a career in this exciting field.
