One of the major objectives of CARLIGH is the development of staff in member institutions. We do this through a range of training programmes, which are organized both as interactive face-to-face events, and recently via online courses. Meetings of the Governing Council and Management Committee also provide opportunities for continuous self-development of attendees
For example in 2015 the following formal programmes have been held:
CARLIGH/INASP/CUUL Network of Trainers training: 10 academic/research librarians from Ghana joined 10 academic/research librarians from Uganda in two four-day workshops (one in Accra and one in Kampala), plus a community of practice. Dates: December 2014 – June 2015
CARLIGH workshop on “How to get published”: 24 academic/research librarians attended. April 2015.
SABINET training: 10 librarians attended, with a facilitator from Sabinet. June 2015
CARLIGH/INASP Advocacy discussion, with Margaret Law: 10 academic/research librarians attended a three hour session. June 2015
