    Objective: This paper describes how the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona manages the in-service training of its library staff, focusing on the association between the University's administrative and service staff training unit and its library service. Methodology: The paper reviews the process undertaken in recent years to offer training activities by detecting trainees' needs, planning and implementing courses and evaluating training, both at an overall organizational level and in the university's library service in particular. Results: Progress has been made in in-service training and a larger number of training courses are now offered in more diverse formats. On the other hand, the offering still needs to be improved in certain areas, where promptly responding to trainee needs will become crucial.
