The syllabus for the Librarianship Certificate Examination, managed by the State Directorate of Libraries, will change after 28 years. 

This transformation is set to roll out in the academic year 2025  and marks a shift in the assessment process.

The Higher and Technical Education Department recently announced the decision to revise both the syllabus and examination procedure. Previously anchored to the 1996 syllabus, the exam now adapts to the changing dynamics of library sciences.

Beginning in 2025, candidates can expect a new curriculum featuring important subjects such as library and society dynamics, efficient library management strategies, classification and cataloging methodologies, essential information tools and services, and cutting-edge library technology applications.

A dedicated committee, chaired by the esteemed Library Director and comprising six members, examined the existing framework. Their thorough assessment revealed the way for comprehensive updates aimed at aligning the examination with contemporary demands.

Moreover, the revised syllabus places significant emphasis on practical learning, incorporating work experience opportunities and project-based assessments. Formerly scheduled from June 1 to 10, the exams will now take place from June  21 to June 30, providing candidates with ample time for preparation and assessment readiness.

Furthermore, recognizing the importance of second chances, the updated procedure also allows the candidates up to three opportunities to retake the examination in the event of failure of the examination.
