To understand how a library’s ILS (Integrated library System) works, consider S554 Library systems. If you wish to contribute to the organization of digital resources, consider S634 Metadata and/or S652 Digital Libraries. Consider the size and location of your preferred public library to help guide you to a better choice of electives.
