The UWG School Library Media (SLM) program offers several options in coursework. All SLM options prepare students to serve in PK-12 settings as building-level school library media specialists (also known as “school librarians”) or district-level media coordinators (also known as “district library supervisors”). Throughout all SLM coursework options, students learn how to implement the American Association of School Librarians (AASL) National School Library Standards for Learners, School Librarians, and School Libraries.  

Program Highlights: 

Field Experience Requirement for SLM Non-degree and M.Ed. programs: 

Students are required to complete a minimum of 50 clock hours of field experience in school library settings, either as a volunteer or as an employee in a school library during their time in the program. Within the 50 hours, students must spend at least two full instructional days (minimum 7 continuous hours per day) volunteering their service with fully certified school librarians in school libraries at levels (elementary, middle, high) other than where they complete the majority of the field experience.
