Abstract: 

This paper examines re-training of librarians for the digital work environment by the Nigerian Library Association (NLA). In addition to personal observation a documentary analysis of the contents of NLA Information Technology Section workshops training Compact Disc (CD) for the period 2007 to 2011 was used to collect data for this study. Findings from the analysis revealed that the Information Technology Section of the Nigerian Library Association has been playing a vital role in re-training librarians for the digital work environment in their annual Library and Information Technology Today workshops. Recommendations include streamlining the topics covered in the annual workshops for effectiveness.
