Library Support Staff Certification Approved by ALA

The Executive Board of the American Library Association approved
the establishment of a certification program for library support staff
at its meeting last week in Chicago. The LSSC Program is the
first national, voluntary certification program for library support
staff. Funded by a grant from the Institute of Museum and Library
Services, the program will now enter a testing phase in five library
organizations across the United States.

Camilla Alire, ALA president, said, "This innovative certification
program demonstrates the value of all library support staff to our
national association and to our nation's libraries. LSS are critical to
the success of our libraries in meeting the needs of our users."

Here is the document that was approved by the Executive Board.
