NEVOILE DE FORMARE PROFESIONALĂ A PERSONALULUI DE SPECIALITATE DIN BIBLIOTECILE DIN REPUBLICA MOLDOVA
The training and professional identity of the librarian is a current problem, driven by the changes that have been made in recent years in the field of librarianship and information science. At the same time, the challenge of change comes from the society, which asks new and innovative services, creativity and counseling from libraries. Change is inevitable for the survival and success of any library in the technological world. Under these circumstances, the main career way for librarians is lifelong learning. In order to understand what professional skills are needed for librarians from different types of libraries, as well as to better understand the trends and needs of professional training of the infodocumentary specialists in the Republic of Moldova, the Association of Librarians of the
Republic of Moldova (ABRM), in collaboration with the Center of Continuing Education of the USM and the National Center for Professional Excellence for Librarians (CNEPB), at the end of 2015, conducted the research on the training needs of library specialists.
