Abstract

Lifelong learning and skills updating is recognised as being an essential part of today’s business world. Librarianship is no different. The author explains the opportunity and reasoning behind a job trade undertaken in the spring of 1997 for eight months. This involved temporarily leaving her job in the Lappeenranta University of Technology Library, Finland and gaining new experience within the forestry industry, which included the chance to update her knowledge of industrial information services. The conclusions drawn from this experience highlight the importance of keeping abreast of advancing technology in the business world, in order to train students effectively for their transition into the job market.
