SLA’s Competencies for Information Professionals are currently organized into three categories, each of which have in-depth points of focus, such as managing information organizations and applying information tools and technologies:
- Professional Competencies relate to the practitioner’s knowledge of information resources, access, technology and management, and the ability to use this knowledge as a basis for providing the highest quality information services.
- Personal Competencies represent a set of attitudes, skills and values that enable practitioners to work effectively and contribute positively to their organizations, clients and profession.
- Core Competencies anchor the professional and personal competencies. These two core competencies are essential for all information professionals. As educated professionals, information professionals understand the value of developing and sharing their knowledge; this is accomplished through association networks and by conducting and sharing research at conferences, in publications and in collaborative arrangements of all kinds.
SLA Connections will provide you with key developments as the process unfolds.
