A Library Technical Assistant, or LTA, is an important member of the library team that assists librarians with circulation, reference, technical processing and audio-visual services. College of DuPage offers an LTA program that trains these essential paraprofessionals through a combination of classroom lectures, hands-on exercises and field trips. And graduates of the program have an opportunity to showcase their professional portfolios to potential employers, colleagues and the general public.
