Abstract

Consists of the data collected about the Core Competencies for 21st Century CARL Librarians. The hypothesis tested was that the CARL Competencies were not being used by academic librarians. If they were being used, the intent was to discover any differences in their use and whether these differences were related to their positions within their respective libraries, and thus their potential use for ideological control at the administrative level. Unfortunately, less than 6% of the population responded. This research was not able to help build a more accurate picture of the current landscape of the use of competencies in Canadian academic libraries or to gain a picture of whether and how the CARL competencies are being used by members of the profession.
