SchoolNet to train KZN ELITS Officials on the Digital Library Course

Submitted by Hlengiwe Mfeka
SchoolNet SA has been contracted by the KwaZulu-Natal Department of Education to conduct training for 30 Education Library Information and Technology Service (ELITS) Officials during the first week of December 2017.

The traditional role of a librarian as a knowledge manager has evolved to become that of being a curator of resources and a partner in the development of online learning materials. The intention of this course is to equip officials who run libraries with the skills to adapt to this changing role.

In order to conduct this training, SchoolNet SA has developed a new Digital Library Course, which was designed to equip librarians /ELITS officials with knowledge of digital issues pertaining to the management of a school library. Across the week long course, officials will see how digital tools and resources can enhance the services traditionally offered at libraries and resource centers.

Participants will walk away from the course with the skills and knowledge to develop a well-defined and well-informed personalized action plan designed to ensure that the school library or education centre that they are associated with fully utilizes the advantages of digitization.
