Libraries are important community strongholds of learning and information. Anyone can use libraries to access information and further their knowledge for free and without prejudice. With many technological advancements and global changes to how people access and use information, librarians and library staff need to be equipped with the right skill sets that make them more knowledgeable, productive and valued by their customers. As librarians, we all need continuous professional development and re-skilling to ensure we remain relevant in our skills and knowledge.
This is where KnowledgeDOT comes in. Helmed by experienced library professionals and consultants with more than 50 years of experience in library services, and a passion for enhancing the capacities of librarians and library services, we design capacity building programmes with libraries, librarians and library staff in mind. Each capacity training course is made relevant and contextualised to your country’s need and comes with practical solutions and tools to enable library staff to use easily and immediately implement ideas when they get back at their respective libraries.
