Abstract

Interdisciplinary cooperation among law and public librarians in partnership with some other institutions in Split

Regardless of the technological progress in the area of digital environment, human resources remain a crucial factor for sustainable development of library services. There is a permanent need for trained proffessionals which are able to fulfill library's vision and goals. Training and practical learning should be available for all of the expert employees, not only those with highest levels of formal education. A multidisciplinary approach to librarianship, continuously updating the knowledge acquired through exchange of good practices, learning from the older and more experienced, mutual help and professional solidarity help the librarians and libraries to keep pace with time and needs of their founders and citizens. Regional centre for interlibrarian cooperation and practical learning, which is meant to be located in Split, a local and regional center, will hopefuly enable libraries employees to aquire additional skills through workshops and lectures held by colleagues from Croatia and abroad. Regional centre is a cooperation project between City Library, Faculty of Law Split and the University library of Split, which intends to offer specialized skills, library material and access to accademic community. This type of investment in knowledge will undoubtedly positively reflect on competitiveness of local and regional libraries, with an indirect positive effect on the local community.
