Welcome to the LSSCP Blog!

Welcome to the official blog of the Library Support Staff Certification Program (LSSCP). This project, started in July 2007, is developing a voluntary certification program for all of those who work in positions in libraries that do not require a Master's in Library Science. The LSSCP staff and Advisory Committee are excited about the project's progress and plan to use this blog to provide you with information, answer your questions and respond to your comments. We hope that the blog also stimulates discussion among its readers. We plan to post important documents to the blog, beginning with a full LSSCP Briefing Document for ALA Midwinter. However, to avoid information overload, we will keep these documents to a minimum. For more detailed information on LSSCP, follow the link to We're first time bloggers so if you have any suggestions for our blog, please let us know!
