Vermont Librarian Certification Guide - 2023

Librarian Certification Guide for the state of Vermont

Last Reviewed: August 23rd, 2022

Librarian certification, or licensure, is Vermont’s process of gatekeeping the profession: making sure there is a base level of knowledge for all certified librarians and school-aged children are not exposed to individuals with a criminal history. Currently, school librarians and public librarians are required to possess certification prior to employment. However, virtually all other types of librarians are also subject to the educational requirement of a masters degree in Library and Information Sciences for entry-level positions.
