Library services are increasingly migrating to the digital environment in both the building of collections and in patron interactions. This migration has encouraged the emergence of new LIS disciplines that have various titles such as digital librarianship or emerging technologies librarianship. Working in this environment requires technological skills and experience, an understanding of metadata, and an ability to create and manage digital content. Read more about both the Digital Services Pathway and the Emerging Technologies pathway.
There is a close relationship between the Digital Services and the Emerging Technologies Pathways. The Digital Services pathway focuses on the technical and usability aspects of building digital platforms for users. The Emerging Technologies pathway focuses more on the user experience. Students might want to mix and match classes from both pathways.
All students in the Post-Master's Certificate Program must start the program by completing the following one-unit course that introduces them to our School's sophisticated online learning environment: Online Social Neworking: Technology and Tools.
