Abstract

Introduces NoWAL (Northwest Academic Libraries), a consortium in the north west of England. Describes NoWAL's staff training and development programme which includes a general programme, the CILIP Certificate in Library and Information Practice, the CALIM Standard Professional Training programme and a pilot project for senior management. Additionally, NoWAL members engage in exchanging experience, job shadowing and visits. Also recounts how NoWAL secured a contract with OCLC's netlibrary that has led to the acquisition of a collection of up to 12,000 priced and 3,800 free titles - the biggest e-book deal in Europe.
