Core Competencies

ALA Core Competences and Relationship to LIS Student Learning Outcomes

The Core Competences approved by the American Library Association in 2009 define a set of skills and knowledge that form the basic preparation for an entry level professional in the field of information services. In preparing Student Learning Outcomes (SLOs) for the LIS Program, faculty members made sure that the SLOs addressed the Core Competences. Refer to the alignment table of the ALA Core Competences and LIS Student Learning Outcomes.
