Research Project on the Pipeline for New Talent

SCONUL (The Society of College, National and University Libraries)

Expected outputs

It is anticipated the research findings into this commission will give SCONUL a better understanding of:

  • The numbers involved and the types of role occupied by new professionals in SCONUL libraries
  • The transition from Library and Information School (or equivalent) to professional practice
  • What SCONUL libraries gain from employing new professionals 
  • How managers can best support the professional development of their new recruits

A report will be made available once the research is completed.
