The Training Team of the Information Resources unit at Gettysburg College (Pennsylvania) is not only responsible for answering faculty members' technology questions, but also charged with instructing the entire community in the basics of using a wide variety of applications. The Training Team is a combination of software specialists and bibliographic instruction librarians. With the idea of forming stronger faculty partnerships, a menu of training possibilities was put together, with four different options for delivery time and timespan. The goal in all cases is to improve the technology skills of the faculty so that they become secure in requiring/teaching basic information technology skills. The other agenda is to forge partnerships with student trainers. Student case workers have been key in the continued success of the operation. The syllabus for a sample 2-day training workshop on Netscape is included. (AEF)
