Applications for the second cohort of students in the Graduate Certificate
of Professional Studies in Youth Experience (YX) offered by the College of
Information Studies at the University of Maryland is now open. This
innovative, online post-masters certificate gives youth service librarians
and school librarians the skills they need to integrate the latest research
on learning, technology, community partnerships, and design thinking into
their practice with youth ages 0-18. Limited scholarships, generously
supported by the Institute of Museum and Library Services, are available on
a competitive basis. To learn more about the certificate program, watch
this short video available at https://youtu.be/ihNJBlLpgo8 or visit

Additionally, the YX faculty will host online information sessions on *December
11th, 2017 at 8pm EST* and *January 16th, 2018 at 7pm EST*. The information
sessions will describe the courses in this certificate and how they will
enhance librarians’ skills to incorporate design thinking, participatory
design, and connected learning into their programs and services. We will
also be providing details on the application process at this time. The
sessions will be recorded and the link made available after. If you are

or to receive the recording: https://go.umd.edu/YXinterest. Thank you!
