Another Route to Library Media Endorsement

It is now possible for certified teachers to gain endorsement in library media via successful completion of the state designated content test. In South Dakota, this test is the Praxis test.

A Library Media Specialist endorsement can still be gained through successful completion of accredited coursework. In South Dakota there are two options: Black Hills State University offers a library media minor/endorsement which is exclusively online; and Emporia State University will offer a SD endorsement via their MLS (Masters of Library Science) coursework either on the Augustana campus or online.
