Skill upgrade for librarians

Daniel Naidu
Thursday, July 11, 2013

AS part of National Library Week, the School Library Association of Fiji conducted a two-day workshop focused on the setting up and running of libraries.

School Library Association president Sereana Senidamanu said the workshop was geared toward school librarians and teachers with library responsibilities.

"The requirement now with the Ministry of Education is that every school should have a library because of their curriculum, which calls for research, therefore for a school without a library, it would be difficult for teachers and children to access the relevant information for their studies," Ms Senidamanu said.

She said a small percentage of school librarians had completed a library courses at USP and the aim of the workshop was to assist them in running libraries more efficiently.

Ms Senidamanu added that while the internet was a "very handy source of information", she still favoured books because the internet provided too many sources of distraction for students.
