This paper examines the background and initial development of an online training resource, created in response to a comprehensive skills audit of Victorian Public Library Staff in late 2013. The audit revealed a capacity and confidence gap between respondents and manager expectations in the area of Information and Communications Technology (ICT) and general digital literacy. The training resource will address ICT skills and confidence through a hybrid of structured content and challenge/inquiry-based learning and reflection.
