Twenty-five librarians from 11 public libraries in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia’s capital city, will attend information and communications technology (ICT) skills training organized by the EIFL Public Library Innovation Programme (EIFL-PLIP).
The training is part of a larger project that seeks to modernize the services of the 11 public libraries by equipping them with computers and internet connections and by building their capacity to integrate ICT into services that meet the needs of children and youth. During 2016, EIFL’s partner organization, Addis Ababa Culture and Tourism Bureau, installed computers and internet connections in the 11 public libraries.
The librarians will learn basic ICT skills, and how to integrate ICT into their services. During two previous workshops, the same group of librarians learnt how to plan new services, and communication and advocacy skills.
The training will be conducted by the Consortium of Ethiopian Academic and Research Libraries (CEARL), EIFL’s partner consortium in Ethiopia.
The training is part of EIFL’s capacity building programme for public librarians in Africa.
