Title 173, Chapter 1, Section 3.13. which states, "the library director completes no fewer than eight (8) hours of continuing education per year. All other full time library support staff complete no fewer than three (3) hours of continuing education per year."
Continuing education opportunities include both formal and informal learning situations that are designed to keep library personnel abreast of knowledge and development within the field, enhance job competence, or lead to specialization in new areas of librarianship. The intent of requiring continuing education is to insure West Virginia library workers have the appropriate skills and knowledge necessary to provide quality service and to generally improve library service in the state on a consistent basis.
Full time library support staff should work closely with the library director to meet the continuing education requirement. Because of the broad scope of librarianship, it is important to attend workshops and presentations on a broad range of topics.
