Indiana State University's certification program in library media services meets all qualifications required by the Division of Professional Standards and is accredited by the NCATE (National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education). Graduates are eligible for certification for both school and public library IV. Certification/licensure as a teacher is required in Indiana for a school library media specialist. However, this is not a public library requirement.
Upon successful completion of the program, individuals are eligible to add a Library Media teaching license to an existing teaching license. Individuals will be recommended for licensure only at the developmental level of their existing teaching license. This is NOT an initial licensure program.
