Demystifying CLM

While ALA’s Certification Committee members have been hard at work writing exam items, they’ve also been working to demystify the certification process, writing on such topics as how exam items are written, scored and reviewed. We hope these articles are helpful to demystify your journey to obtaining CLM certification. For all CLM inquiries, please contact certification@alanet.org.
