British Library embarks on e-learning pilot

The British Library is developing three courses for UK businesses this autumn and winter with e-learning developer Nelson Croom.

The online modules complement an existing programme of workshops run by the Business & IP Centre at the St Pancras site in London. The workshops cover a variety of topics on information and research techniques.

The Business & IP Centre hosts a large collection of business and intellectual property information as a resource for businesses. Over 25,000 people have visited the Centre since the it opened in March 2006.

Nigel Spencer, research and business development manager at the British Library, said: "This project is part of our overall strategy to extend the reach of the Library's services to those unable to visit in person. It will also enable us to learn about the online provision of training and will inform future developments"

The London Development Agency awarded the British Library's Business & IP Centre £1 million in May 2005 to help transform it from a pilot project into a permanent national resource.

The first e-learning course is expected in in December.
