In a press release dated September 5, 2013, the American Library Association-Allied Professional Association (ALA-APA) announced that it will officially recognize graduates of the Library and Information Services Program at Spokane Falls Community College (SFCC) with the Library Support Staff Certification (LSSC) designation.
The ALA-APA had reviewed the SFCC curriculum and determined that it met most of the LSSC requirements. Candidates must also have one year of recent library experience, or meet that requirement within 4 years, in order to receive the LSSC designation.
In the press release, Lorelle Swader, director of ALA-APA, was quoted as saying, “SFCC’s graduates will be recognized for their acquired skills and knowledge with this national certification, which is quickly becoming a standard for the profession. The LSSC will show employers of these graduates that they have made a commitment to furthering their own continuing professional development and future.”
The Washington State Library congratulates the SFCC Library and Information Services Program on this recognition and achievement.
