Lifelong learning and opportunities in the UK through initiatives such as the National Grid for Learning and the University for Industry, are briefly described prior to an overview of how public libraries can, and are, being involved in the process of providing ICT (Information and Communications Technology) training courses for lifelong learners. In Belfast Public Libraries, partnerships have been made with other organisations involved in running training courses in ICT. A pilot scheme has involved people coming to the library for courses such as CLAIT (Computer Literacy and Information Technology) and the ECDL (European Computer Driving Licence). Preliminary results from this pilot are described.
