Title:The Development of Computer- Based Training in a Systematic Staff Training Program
Author(s):Rader, Joe C.
Subject(s):Libraries --United States --Data processing
Information storage and retrieval systems
Abstract:In 1990, the Libraries of the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, successfully developed a seven-unit program of computer-based training (CBT) for library staff under a Department of Education grant. The program's development and its implementation mark a first in libraries for systematic CBT for staff. Named New Horizons in Library Training, the program has been distributed widely to other libraries. Although expensive, this pioneering work has promise for further development and refinement as a staff training tool and for joint utility with computerbased programs of user instruction.
