Library and Repository Communities Join Together to Identify New Competencies for Academic Librarians

“The Association of Research Libraries ARL, the Canadian Association of Research Libraries CARL, the Confederation of Open Access Repositories COAR, and the Association of European Research Libraries LIBER are pleased to announce the launch of a Joint Task Force on Librarians’ Competencies in Support of E-Research and Scholarly Communication. Rapid changes in technology and associated shifts in research and scholarly communications are profoundly changing the role of libraries in the 21st century. The emergence of e-research, for example, is bringing about new ways of doing science across the globe, compelling libraries to adopt new services, such as assisting with the development of research data management plans, hosting collaborative virtual research environments, managing institutional repositories, and disseminating research outputs through open access mechanisms. These novel services require a range of new skills and expertise within the library community as well as a shift in organizational models for libraries.”
