Areas of Instruction

Library and Information Technology Classes (LIBT )

LIBT classes are Career Education (CE) credit courses that will enable students to earn a degree or certificate in Library and Information Technology and work as a Library Technician or Assistant. These courses teach a wide range of technical skills that will prepare students who wish to start a career in libraries. Students from this program can find employment in over 200 school, public, special, and other libraries in the greater Sacramento region.

Library Research Classes (LIBR)

LIBR credit courses are designed to equip students with vital research skills, enabling their success in college classes and on the job. Students will gain “research survival skills” to cope with the information-rich environment in which they live and work. In particular, these classes teach students how to find and evaluate information from print, the Internet, and other online resources.

Non-Credit Library Instruction

SCC Librarians offer non-credit sessions demonstrating the use of library resources and the Internet. Librarians are also available to guide students through the research process whenever the library is open. Please drop by the reference desk on the second floor of the Learning Resource Center for assistance or more information.
