By BBN Staff: The Consortium for Belize Educational Cooperation (COBEC), in collaboration with Valdosta State University and the Belize National Library Service and Information System (BNLSIS), held a Public Libraries Training Course at the Central Information Technology Office in Belmopan.
The course, which opened on August, 29 concluded today, September 4.
The purpose of the course, which has the participation of 23 staff members from various libraries and institutions in Belize, is to deliver a face-to-face overview of public libraries.
It is geared to help participants establish a foundational perspective to use going forward in the implementation of the effective use of information technology on the practice of public librarianship.
The 25-hour course covered basic principles, philosophies, administrative, technical and technological issues impacting the use of information technology in the public library.
COBEC was established in the 1980s to link Belize with the United States of America and other countries for the purposes of strengthening and expanding their capabilities in higher education. It includes all the significant tertiary-level education institutions engaged in projects or activities in Belize.
The course, which was facilitated by Dr. Edward Lomax and Patricia Ball, is expected to facilitate cooperation, share information, and maximize resources available to aid the development of higher education in Belize.
In addition, this instructional exercise and educational experience will definitely prove beneficial in the education and training of our student cohort in Belize.
