Staff training is an important function in many libraries because it can increase staff competence, effectiveness and morale. For a variety of reasons, including government encouragement, desire to maximise the use of staff resources, and to enable coverage of areas of expertise not available in all libraries, some groups of librarians have found it profitable to undertake training co‐operatively. A number of schemes were set up in the 1970s. As with many co‐operative ventures, there have been successes and disappointments but it has nevertheless been possible to attain a better general standard of training at less cost per trainee.
