‘Our aim is to identify training needs within member Irish academic and national libraries to form the basis of an ongoing co-operative training and development programme.’
CONUL Training & Development seeks to provide co-operative training and staff development opportunities, which are in support of CONUL’s strategic objectives. These opportunities are identified by staff in member libraries, the CONUL Board and CONUL Sub-Committees & Groups.
The Academic and National Library Training Co-operative was founded in 1995. It became a sub-committee of CONUL in 2013 and was renamed ANLTC (CONUL Staff Training & Development). It was further rebranded in 2018 as CONUL Training & Development. Our aim is to identify training needs within member Irish academic and national libraries to form the basis of an ongoing co-operative training and development programme. This training supplements each institution’s own programme and through joint group consultation, aims to offer a wide range of training opportunities to library staff at an economical rate. Co-operative training also enables staff to meet colleagues from other institutions.
