Library Support Staff Certification Program Recruits Portfolio
The Library Support Staff Certification (LSSC) Program is recruiting
librarians to evaluate online portfolios. You can learn more about
how to become a portfolio evaluator and how evaluation works on Monday,
June 28 from 1:30 to 3:30 at the Grand Hyatt, Roosevelt-Wilson Room.
Portfolios will be evaluated by librarians who meet the following
criteria: a master's degree in library science or in an area related to
the competency set; experience in teaching, training, or writing in
areas related to the competency set; or significant (more than five
years preferred) of on-the-job experience in an area related to
The LSSC Program began accepting applications for candidacy on January
25th. To be certified, candidates must achieve six of 10 competency
sets. Candidates can achieve these competency sets through
participation in an approved course or by submitting an online
portfolio. The ten competency sets are: Foundations of Library
Service; Communication and Teamwork; Technology; Access Services; Adult
Readers Advisory Services; Cataloging and Classification; Collection
Management; Reference and Information Services; Supervision and
Management; and Youth Services.
LSSC Project Co-Director Nancy Bolt says: "Many of our LSSC candidates
are already busily preparing portfolios. Now we need qualified
librarians to assess those portfolios and advise the LSSC Program if the
candidate should be given credit. This is a critical aspect of LSSC and
we hope librarians will share their expertise with us."

<http://www.ala-apa.org/lssc/portfolioevaluators.html> and email your
resume to lssc at ala.org. More information about LSSC and the portfolio
evaluation process can be found at www.lssc.org <http://www.lssc.org/> .
