Call it an index, a guide, a dictionary, a menu of competencies. The purpose of compiling competencies for library practice is to help libraries of all sizes and types build the foundation of competencies that will help them to develop staff skills and knowledge and ultimately to help meet the needs of the community. Take a look at competency sets from around the library field and learn how competencies can be applied in your library.
