Librarian Certification Guide for the state of Nevada

Last Reviewed: November 18th, 2021

Certification, or licensure, is the process Nevada implements to safeguard the public from negligence or criminal behaviour coming from trusted professionals. School and public librarians are both required to hold certification in Nevada prior to qualifying for employment due to the sensitive nature of their responsibilities: one working with school-aged children and the other interacting with all sectors of the community.

Additionally, for all other types of librarian, an educational requirement exists of a masters degree in Library and Information Science prior to qualifying for entry-level positions. Find all Library and Information Science degree programs in Nevada.
