UNESCO's Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission and its International Oceanographic Data and Information Exchange programme are using training programs, networking, and online learning resources to develop skills and leadership among marine science information staff of varying ages and backgrounds internationally. The paper employs the framework of IFLA's Continuing Professional Development and Workplace Learning Section's guidelines, "Continuing Professional Development: Principles and Best Practices," to check the extent to which this UNESCO/IOC programme reflects the IFLA Section's quality continuing education guidelines. In addition, UNESCO/IOC's effort to foster professional development and retention of marine science information professionals working in decentralized and widely dispersed locations is considered in reference to the themes of the Section's 2009 satellite conference in Bologna.
