You are receiving this email because you have either taken a Library
Technology class or have expressed interest in a degree or certificate in
the LT program.
I have the unfortunate duty to tell you that the DVC LT program is going on
hiatus due to significant declines in enrollment. As some of you know, we
had to cancel two required courses this semester� courses that are only
offered once a year.
*So what does going on hiatus mean?*
Essentially, the LT program is taking a break of 1-3 years to review LT
curriculum, research new positions in the field of library technology, and
potentially develop new classes and programs. *During these years, there
will not be any LT courses offered. *
*How can I finish my certificate/degree? *
From spring 2014 through fall 2014, a complete cycle of required LT courses
will be offered, and these courses will run without enrollment
restrictions. Basically, this means that anyone who wants to finish within
the next three semesters (spring 14, summer 14, and fall 14) will have the
opportunity to take required classes and electives. And just to be clear,
classes *will not* be cancelled due to low enrollment during this time.
*What should I do now?*
Check out the course offerings for spring semester:
If you have any questions about completing the program, substituting
courses from other colleges, library internships, etc., please contact me.
I am happy to set up appointments in the library or on the phone.
Hope you are having a good end to your semester and a happy holiday.
