27-Credit Library Science Teaching Minor

The teaching minor in library science must total 27 credits in the areas of collection development/materials selection; literature for children and/or young adults; organization of information (cataloging and classification); school library administration/management; library information technologies; information literacy; and reference and information services.  This teaching minor will qualify the student for the Idaho K-12 Teacher Librarian Endorsement.  Because library science is not a teaching field, the teacher librarian must also qualify for a standard Idaho elementary or secondary teacher's certificate.
