NASIG Core Competencies: Building a Bridge to the LIS Curricula and Job Responsibilities


The 2016 revised NASIG Core Competencies for Electronic Resources Librarians broadly defines the areas of work that Electronic Resources Librarians engage with and are responsible for. Using findings from two recent studies, this presentation given at the NASIG 2019 Annual Conference identified trends in electronic resource (e-resource) management on two fronts. The first study investigated the degree to which Library and Information Science programs are addressing e-resources, either as the primary subject of a course or as part of a course related to technical services. The second study addressed the distribution of e-resource management responsibilities at Carnegie-classified doctoral universities based on the areas of competency identified in the Core Competencies.
