Promote Student Literacy. Inspire Students to Read
School librarians create a vibrant culture of literacy by teaching critical skills young people need to evaluate and manage information while using innovative technology to share ideas. With a Master of Science in School Library and Information Science with School Librarian and Master Technology certifications from University of Houston-Clear Lake, you’ll become one of your school’s most dynamic educators building on the traditional role of nurturing a love for reading, while developing high-quality collections to support the school curriculum and meet student-reading preferences.
Become a Leader in the Information Age

collaborating with teachers to develop lessons in all curricular areas; helping students
become information-literate, teaching students about the ethical uses of resources;
and implementing and promoting school-wide literacy programs, all of which impact
student learning. Students completing this degree are eligible for certification as
