The Graduate Academic Certificate (GAC) in Children’s and Young Adult Library and Community Services provides students with fundamental knowledge in programs, literature, and information organization for youth.

Graduates will develop skills to effectively design and deliver services for children and young adults in culturally diverse communities. This GAC responds to the ongoing need for people-centered professionals with cutting-edge knowledge and relevant abilities to work with children and young adults, as described in research from the fields of library and information sciences and learning sciences.

Students will take courses that involve a wide range of reading, the development of program skills, the history of youth services librarianship, current trends, information and learning resources, program planning, assessment and implementation, and information organization.
