Abstract or Summary
Mobile technologies have added a new dimension to the role of library staff; a role that requires relevant knowledge and skills to ensure the needs and expectations of their clients are met (Gentry, 2011; Kroski, 2008; Traxler, 2008). For libraries to succeed in the mobile environment, management will have to consider two significant staffing issues. Firstly, they need to understand the knowledge and skills required by staff to enable them to deliver services through mobile technologies, and secondly, that understanding should be applied to develop support and training for staff in the use of mobile technologies. In order to explore these issues a survey was undertaken, in late 2010, involving librarians working in the vocational education and training (VET) sector in Australia and New Zealand.
