 A Voyage of DiscoveryThe papers collected in this volume have been selected from the proceedings of the Sixth World Conference on Continuing Professional Development and Workplace Learning for the Library and Information Professions, held in Oslo in August 2005.

Since the first one in the series was held in Chicago in 1985, this Conference has become established as the leading international meeting dedicated to the practice and theory of continuing professional development for library and information professionals.

It is testimony to the importance of the conference that the call for papers for this sixth edition attracted in excess of eighty submissions from all over the globe! Nearly thirty of these have been brought together in the current volume.

This collection presents a comprehensive overview of current continuing professional development theory and practice for those who manage and work in library and information services. Papers by academics and practitioners describe numerous innovative reponses to emerging continuing education and training needs, including workplace learning, individual learning and learning organisations.
