Competency Standards for Librarians
Question: Where can I find the competency standards for librarians?
Answer: ALA has published a list of the Core Competences of Librarianship that "define the knowledge to be possessed by all persons graduating from ALA-accredited master’s programs in library and information studies." Additional competencies are dependent upon the type of facility and/or the type of librarian. The ALA Library has put together a wiki page that includes a list of competency statements from ALA and other organizations, as well as other resources to help your library create your own competency standards.'
