Library Media Specialists
You should prepare for this field of library media by taking a
strong college preparatory course load, including classes in
English, science, foreign languages, history, geography, and
mathematics. Additional study in communications, broadcasting,
graphic arts, computers, and photography will give you good
background knowledge of the materials you will use every day as a
library media specialist. You may also consider taking courses in
psychology, sociology, education, and child development to help you
learn about the different age groups you will encounter in your
profession, and how you can best help them in your role as a
library media specialist. Computer science classes are also very
important because they will help you learn more about technology
and the Internet.
