Tailor-made training

Enssib offers tailor-made training courses, adapted to the needs and specific context of various institutions.

Enssib participates since 2016 in the training of librarians of L'Institut Français working all over the world. A specific distance learning programme has been designed. This first theoretical courses are supplemented by two weeks of face-to-face teaching which gives the trainees the opportunity to undertake an internship in a French library. On this occasion, they also benefit from additional theoretical contributions, and may take part in visits and discussions with colleagues.

Enssib has also developed a long-standing partnership with the National Library of the Kingdom of Morocco. Speakers from Enssib train their colleagues on a wide range of subjects, from contingency planning to documentary policy and bibliographic transition.
