Abstract or Summary

Provision of effective service delivery within the mobile environment challenges the way in which libraries operate. Development of staff capability characterises the way in which libraries have responded to the challenge. The ability to predict and explain intended response to innovation assists organisational planning. I shall be discussing preliminary findings of a study investigating the current state of preparedness of vocational education and training (VET) libraries across Australia and New Zealand to develop confident and capable staff engaged in the delivery of mobile services.
