    SUMMARY: In the learning society, the traditional instructive process has radically changed: it is not still restricted to children and teenagers, but it concerns all lifetime. Every citizen is supposed to acquire new skills and to use new technologies, not only in his professional framework, but also in his personal and social circle. In the world of knowledge, libraries (public institutions and multimedia laboratories) become a privileged place for elaborating information and learning. Only in libraries it is possible to select, personalize and analyze information and web data. Traditional services (loan, reference, preservation) are supported by new technological instruments, that are meant to satisfy individual needs. The social framework, that library naturally creates, is extremely important because it causes many informal educational processes that complete and fortify students curriculum. Many formative stages can take place in Italian universities libraries, before and after taking a degree. The trainer acquires many technical skills (data banks, audio and video storage mediums, electronic journals) that are always included in a social framework where the librarian gets the role of a tutor in order to simplify learning process. The teaching program is based on a tutorial workshop strategy, where students elaborate personalised projects, set themselves aims suited to their interests and studies; trainer’s motivation is the most powerful cognitive variable. The key of a library stage’s success is the problem oriented setting; that kind of trainings, in fact, are concretely integrated in educational academic programs. The concrete presence in the library is really crucial: that is because learning is a intrinsic form of the job itself. Library becomes a “learning environment” where students can apply different learning techniques: they practise specific tutorial projects or they collaborate together in small teams. Strategies are always related to the constructivism pedagogical theories.
