In consultation with all working groups and members of the SUNY Libraries Consortium (SLC), identify training needs related to the implementation of and continued use of a Library Services Platform (LSP) in a shared geographically dispersed consortia environment. Create and develop a training strategy that addresses needs, format, existing vendor documentation, scalability, content creation, and consortial efficiencies. Facilitate SLC-wide training opportunities, instruction, and training related events based on the developed training strategy.  Recommend training plans and strategies to the LSP Task Force.  Support librarians and staff within SLC who are providing training by providing assistance in developing, assessing, and improving training sessions, learning objects, and training material.  Provide overall guidance on assessment and measuring effectiveness of instruction and assist with continued development of training events and programs.
