The Teacher Librarian Services Credential is a second credential. To be granted the teacher librarian credential a candidate must hold a valid single or multiple subject clear credential Issued by the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing (CTC). Candidates may choose to complete the SLIS teacher librarian coursework prior to earning their first credential, but the application process for the credential cannot be initiated until the first credential is issued by the CTC.
School districts may seek an emergency credential for the teacher librarian position in a school provided the holder of the emergency credential enrolls in a program to prepare them for the Teacher Librarian credential.
