CAVAL Competencies for Academic and Research Librarians - November 2017

These competencies are built on the Core Competencies for 21st Century CARL Librarians (2010) which have been amended and adapted for the current Australian academic library and information context by members of the CAVAL Professional Development Interest Group, in consultation with other key library and information experts in their field. The aim is to outline the broad spectrum of organisational competencies that are needed in an academic research library workforce, and to identify knowledge, experience, skill and attitudinal areas where there is potential for improvement through organisational, team and individual training and professional development.

We encourage you to share this document with your colleagues and build further conversations. #CAVALcompetencies
