Abstract:
In the Fall of 2012, The Access and Information Services Team (AIST) at the University of Arizona Libraries instituted the use of a Course Management System (CMS) to effectively train both classified staff and student workers in a ubiquitous and self-paced eLearning environment. Through the use of the tools embedded in the CMS along with the creation of self-paced online tutorials and competency based quizzing, the AIST team has significantly reduced staff time allocated to in person training and increased efficiencies in providing uniform circulation, reference, and policy training that is available to students and staff on a 24/7 basis. The training sites provide an all-inclusive environment for both trainees in gaining competency in core skills needed to staff a 24 hour library, as well as for supervisors to be able to effectively track and manage staff and student progress.
