The education of adults in the multimedia library of Issy-les-Moulineaux

The establishment of procedures for educating the adult public at the multimedia library of Issy-les-Moulineaux owes much to an ambitious initial programme. Over and above missions that are ensured by the collections and by the considerable opportunities for use on the spot, the multimedia library is encouraging the participation of trainers, particularly in the areas of languages and new technologies. The opportunity for interaction with the public suggests a "university for all ages", and the participation of librarians as trainers of their colleagues is important. The level of take-up in the population confirms the success of these facilities, which makes one wonder what the limits of multimedia libraries are in this area.
