WebJunction has just published the results of a national survey on the use of patron training programs in large U.S. libraries. This IMLS-funded research looked specifically at how libraries are offering training to patrons, how training resources are being selected, and if libraries are developing any content themselves.
The report of the survey findings also includes recommendations for potential future research and suggestions for how libraries can expand their training to patrons. The survey, report, and other details about this research project are posted in the Patron Training section of WebJunction.
