Library Media Specialists

High School

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.
