Library Training Institute
Coordinated by the South Dakota State Library, the Library Training Institute is a four-year program of continuing education for South Dakota-based library practitioners, support staff and trustees of small public libraries. No prior formal library science education, or previous college attendance, is required to attend.
The 2014 theme will be "Children's Services".
Institute participants can start the program at any point in the curriculum, but must complete the four components in seven (7) years. Institute instructors provide in-depth classes in: the foundations of public library service; public library administration; services to the public; collections; technical services; and technology. Students earn college credit from Northern State University, and after completion, are recognized as certified library practitioners.
Institute of Museum and Library Services
The Library Training Institute is funded in part by the Institute of Museum and Library Services.
The character of "Madam Bookworm" was created by artist Michael McGourty for the South Dakota State Library. Please respect our arrangement and do not reuse or alter the artwork for your own needs.
