Charge

The Cataloging Competencies Task Force is charged to draft a core competencies document enumerating the skills and knowledge required for a career in cataloging for use by cataloging practitioners and educators. The task force will identify competencies that are broad enough to be applicable to all concerned with metadata creation, with the intent that specialized communities will extend the document in the future.

Charge

The Cataloging Competencies Task Force is charged to draft a core competencies document enumerating the skills and knowledge required for a career in cataloging for use by cataloging practitioners and educators. The task force will identify competencies that are broad enough to be applicable to all concerned with metadata creation, with the intent that specialized communities will extend the document in the future.

The task force will ensure that the document focuses on the foundational principals of cataloging and metadata creation and avoid recommending specific tools and standards (tools and standards may be referenced in examples, if desired). Finally, the competencies document should acknowledge catalogers' total education and career-long development, rather than identifying a basic set of skills for new library and information science graduates.

The task force will submit a first draft to the Competencies and Education for a Career in Cataloging Interest Group (CECCIG) by Friday, December 4, 2016. The task force chair will distribute the draft for community comment by December 11, in advance of the ALA Midwinter Meeting. A public comment forum will be held during the CECCIG's Midwinter meeting on Friday, January 8, 2016.

Event Competencies and Education for a Career in Cataloging Interest Group

by ALAConnect Helpdesk (staff) on Tue, Jun 16, 2015 at 07:07 pm

Three librarians in the first five years of their careers will discuss how their cataloging coursework did (or did not) help prepare them for their cataloging duties in their current professional roles. We will hear our three presenters focus on their respective cataloging courses and what they learned from them, what kind of experience they have had either before or after library school, and what kind of additional educational or experience-centered background they feel could have been useful to them, if any.
