The paper shows, how to approach implementation and development of processes, that together build an environment of "learning organisation".
First, more theoretic part, is oriented on definition and clarification of the term "learning organisation". Second part describes the situation in IKEM (Institute for Clinical and Experimental Medicine). Current changes, that have been elicited by new possibilities in rapidly developing IT field, active policy in promoting electronic resources and the outflow of users from library to the LCD displays demand reassessment of all the processes. Mere rationalization of former library activities is not enough. The company nowadays need to implement and consolidate new processes to maintain the market and gain competitive advantages and there is a great opportunity for cooperation of information specialists (librarians) and IT people, which can be one of the key factors in development of "learning organisation". Seizing new library and information center roles – support of education, intranet/internet development and digital libraries – are the milestones of such a cooperation.
