Skill maintenance and development must be seen as an essential and integrated element of information literacy professional development in the age of the Internet. Academic librarians' motivations to take part in this development are varied, and influenced by the role the institution plays in providing training opportunities. This paper discusses the issues of responsibility for training and development, looks at how this is addressed in practice, and presents some models in this field. IT concludes that in order stay on top of the heap, responsibility needs to be shared by employer and employee.
