Training Skills for Library Staff
by Barbara Moran and Barbara Allen

"Neuro-linguistic programming? In my library?"

Many information and library practitioners are engaged in training activities in their daily work, and both need and want to know about new approaches to learning. In Training Skills for Library Staff, veteran trainer Barbara Allan takes the mystery out of the potentially unfamiliar and the mindless from the tried and true.

Beginning with a compelling discussion of learning styles and how to apply them, Allan demonstrates best practice skills for designing, delivering, and assessing effective training programs, as both single events and a continuous professional development program. Ideas, activities and techniques abound, as well as listings of contacts and sources of information.

First published in the UK in 2000, Training Skills for Library Staff has been revised and updated for a North American audience by management expert Barbara Moran. Now, as then, it offers a wealth of information upon which you will draw many times over.
