Abstract

This paper uses the theory of self-directed learning to examine how library staff learn, in particular the perception that training is inadequate. It attempts to suggest ways of providing improved learning opportunities for staff in a changing environment. The results of a survey on how staff members from two university libraries perceive their learning are discussed.
