School Librarian Option 4

You are here

(Additional) PreK-12 School Librarian Endorsement Only

This option is only available to currently licensed Tennessee teachers, who want to add the PreK-12 School Librarian Endorsement to their existing license. The requirements include the three required courses (INSC 510, 520, 530) plus INSC 551, 560, 571, 572, either INSC 580 or 581, and INSC 596 (which must be taken twice).

Upon completion of the requirements, students will gain a Tennessee State Department of Education additional endorsement as a Prek-12 School Librarian. 

The advising sheet for this option is available here, and gives more information about the course titles and when the various courses are taught.

Note: Although you may choose to start with just the endorsement, we strongly encourage every applicant to consider the benefits of pursuing the full Master’s in Information Science. Doing so may open new vistas and job opportunities for you, beyond schools and public libraries.
