Professor Tom Wilson, Head of the Department of Information Studies,
University of Sheffield has compiled a list of international schools
of LIS, business information systems, and information technology:

3.2 Where can I earn a library technician diploma?    

Check out the Library Support Staff Resource Center site at the U of
Rochester for a list of schools in the U.S, Canada, Australia and the
UK: http://www.lib.rochester.edu/ssp/
The Library Paraprofessional Clearinghouse has information on
organizations, conferences, education and employment:

3.3 Can I take courses or earn an accredited library degree through
correspondence?  

Yes, you can earn an Associate Degree, Diploma, Certificate, or
Continuing Education credits through distance and continuing education
programs. See: http://www.lib.rochester.edu/ssp/educate/educate.htm  

3.4 What conferences can I attend to keep my knowledge and skills up
to date?  

The Librarian's Datebook, maintained by Barbara Tysinger of the
University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, is a comprehensive
listing of LIS conferences around the world,
http://www.hsl.unc.edu/libcal.htm
I would also suggest visiting the continuously updated LIBRES
Conferences and Meetings page,
http://www.curtin.edu.au/curtin/dept/sils/libres/meetings.htm . 

The ALA's American Libraries Datebook,
http://www.ala.org/alonline/datebook/datebook.html, has information on
conferences, events (like National TV Turnoff Week), workshops and
study tours. 

And if you need to convince your superiors that you must attend a
weekend conference in Barbados on "Book Repair for the New
Millennium", see: http://www.lib.rochester.edu/ssp/events/strategy.htm
