This is a call to fellow library, information and knowledge professionals to contribute to a research project by completing a short survey on training needs. If you work in the library, information and knowledge sector, please read on to learn more about the project and how you can contribute to it.
The survey is one of the data collection tools for the project Training provision for the library, information and knowledge sector. This work has been commissioned by the Chartered Institute of Library and Information Professionals (CILIP).
In the first phase of the project we are keen to consult with a range of stakeholders on training needs for the library, information and knowledge sector. The survey results will help determine the training delivery preferences of CILIP’s target audience (individuals, manager and employers), and training, learning and development needs as linked to the newly-developed CILIP Professional Knowledge and Skills Base (PKSB).
The project team members – myself, Christine Irving and Peter Cruickshank – of the Centre for Social Informatics within the Institute for Informatics and Digital Innovation (IIDI) at Edinburgh Napier University will be delighted if you can spare 10 minutes or so to contribute to this work by completing the short survey this week. (The survey will close on Monday 25th March at 09:00am.)
For more information about the project, please see the project page on the IIDI web site and the press release from CILIP.
