Thanks to staff in libraries across the State who filed in the online LMS training survey. We received 300 responses, which indicates that a significant number of library staff are looking for further training.
We had responses from 95% of Metro libraries, 93% of Country libraries and 73% of School Community Libraries. Given the differences in staff numbers it is not surprising that 62% of responses came from Metro libraries, 20% from Country libraries and 18% from School Community Libraries.
The graph below provides a high level overview of the types of training that people are looking for.
PLS staff have commenced analysing the details which sit behind this graph with the intention of building a range of training approaches to meet library staff needs. We intend to use a number of alternative approaches to provide training, ranging from informal refresher sessions, through online training , some face to face sessions and the deployment of SirsiDynix trainers as required.
We will be providing a detailed report to the LMS User Group on the implications of your responses, and will also release this report to the Network.
So - thanks again for the really great response & watch this space for more advice about the delivery of the training that you've asked for.
