English for library staff

A closed-group course available by arrangement

This course aims to help you do your desk job more effectively in English. You will strengthen your English speaking skills and build work-related vocabulary. Topics covered may include: explaining library procedures, rules, regulations and practices; giving directions; and answering frequently asked questions. The exact topics will be chosen in consultation with participants. If relevant, you will be asked to give a guided tour of your library.

Experience has taught me that this course works best with participants from a range of libraries so as to give them the opportunity to exchange ideas, compare practices and look around each other’s libraries.
