The Survey of Library Employee Training Practices

  • Published: June 2012
  • 110 Pages
  • Primary Research Group

This 100+page report looks closely at how public, academic and special libraries train their employees. It gives detailed data on spending on training, and on how libraries prioritize spending on training. The report helps to answer questions such as: how many libraries and what type of libraries have specific training budgets and training directors? Do they conduct internal courses? Send employees to external courses? Use library science schools? Do they reimburse employees for library science courses taken at universities? How much do they spend on internal courses, external courses or library science schools? Who oversees training? Which areas receive the most training support? Technical services? Information technology? Digitization? Circulation? Management? To what extent does the library use training services such as LibraryU, Merlot or Webjunction, among others? Of whom is training required?

Just a few of the many findings from this report are:

- 42.86 percent of public libraries in the sample hire external instructors to teach courses in-house, as opposed to just 19.05 percent of academic libraries
- Libraries in the sample spent a mean of $4,631.88 in the last READ MORE >
