Example of Bespoke Training

One high-profile training we developed and delivered was for Awen Libraries, who obtained a grant from the Kathleen Cooks Fund at Cilip Cymru for six weeks of bespoke online training for their team. We delivered it via the Beginning Cataloguing Online School, using Zoom for realtime meetings, with homework between each session. Materials were designed using a mixture of examples from the Bridgend Library collection and the books in Anne’s home in Essex.
