ACRL/RBMS Task Force to Review Competencies for Special Collections Professionals


ACRL policy requires each of its standards and guidelines be reviewed every five years. This task force is charged to review Competencies for Special Collections Professionals (2008) and determine whether the standard should be (1) continued in force without change, (2) revised to address current needs, or (3) rescinded. The task force will report to the RBMS Executive Committee by the ALA Annual Meeting in 2014. If the task force determines a revision is necessary, it will draft a revision and keep the Executive Committee apprised of its progress. Chapter 14 of ACRL’s Guide to Policies and Procedures, especially section 14.6, “Procedures for Updating Standards and Guidelines,” should be consulted.
