This paper is based on a study which examined the nature of staff training and development in six Ugandan private chartered university libraries. For contextualization of the study, the nature of training and development was taken into account, training needs, challenges and strategies to improve training and development were delineated. The study adopted a pragmatism paradigm. It adopted both quantitative and qualitative methods. A self-administered questionnaire and interview schedule were used for data collection. Strategies to improve challenges related to training and development were generated. The study recommended that collaborative service delivery solutions were required to address the backlog in training and development at these libraries.
