New business librarians and nonbusiness librarians serving business needs require training and orientation to the unique aspects of business librarianship. Formal training programs can be devised to raise competencies in providing core business information services. Given the pace of change, such programs must emphasize flexible and adaptable approaches to finding information, rather than reliance on specific sources. Trends in the business information environment will likely favor greater use of just-in-time training and knowledge databases.
