Library (LIBR)

Career Options & Highlights

The Folsom Lake College Library courses teach vital research skills that enable students to achieve success in their college classes, their careers, and their day-to-day lives. Students will gain “research survival skills” to cope with the information rich environment in which they live. They will develop the ability to access information from a broad range of resources, and to evaluate this information and its sources. Course study will include information from print, online subscription databases and the Internet. FLC Librarians also offer non-credit library instruction sessions, demonstrating the use of library resources and the Internet. Please drop by the reference desk to pick up a helpful handout, obtain individual assistance, or for more information. Students interested in a paraprofessional library career can complete the Library and Information Technology program available at Sacramento City College. Students interested in a professional library career need a bachelor’s degree and a graduate Library and Information Science degree.
