Teacher librarians are currently attending training sessions about the change from the OLIVER LMS system to the Vsmart which is used by the Malta Libraries. Members were told that they will now have to input details of every new membership which will be issued. Previously records of students were inputted in the system by SIS and not by the librarians. Following clarification, the MUT can confirm that this practice will remain the same and teacher librarians will not be under any obligations to input details.
Furthermore, the MUT communicated with the Ministry after the Union was informed that Malta Libraries personnel were going to visit schools to supervise teacher librarians, something which is not acceptable to the MUT.
