Continuous education of the staff of higher education libraries: towards a strengthening of the networking process

The Office of Education, Publishing and Information Systems of the Division of Libraries and Documentation (SDBD) has just completed a study carried out in 2001 on the network of continuous education in higher education libraries. This work has made it possible to construct an analysis of the state of the education system and from that to produce a systematic medium-term action plan for the organisation of the network. By means of the method and course of action adopted, the SDBD wants to develop this, following a managerial approach - going beyond a strict economic and administrative analysis - so that the projects of the institutions will as far as possible be accompanied by the development of education services adapted as closely as possible to their real needs.
