NASIG 29th Annual Conference
Taking Stock and Taming New Frontiers

Established in 1985, the North American Serials Interest Group, Inc. (NASIG) is an independent organization that promotes communication, information, and continuing education about serials and the broader issues of scholarly communication. NASIG welcomes anyone interested in the serials information chain. Inspired by the United Kingdom Serials Group (UKSG), NASIG held its first conference at Bryn Mawr College in June 1986. The annual conference, usually held in late May or June, offers a premier opportunity to meet others representing the diverse interests of the serials community and to hear speakers who are on the cutting edge of scholarly communication.

Core Competencies to the Rescue: Taking Stock and Protecting Institutional Knowledge

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The Electronic Resources and Serials Services Department at Auburn University was searching for a way to take stock of skills held and missing and focus on key areas of training needed by the group. The unit has adopted the "Core Competencies for Electronic Resources Librarians" as a way to systematically tame these and other issues. The presenters will describe how we use the Core Competencies to: conduct a self-assessment of skills by unit members; identify competencies where proficiency is lacking; prioritize training for department members; and to organize measures to protect the future from any potential loss of staff or institutional knowledge.
