Keywords:core competences, LIS curriculum, instruction, outcomes, social justice, pedagogy, curriculum, standards, teaching faculty
The ALA Core Competences of Librarianship (ALACCs) codifies the essential skills, knowledge and abilities expected of professional librarians and allied professionals in a set of nine competencies. The ALACCs were significantly revised and updated over a period of five years, and were approved by ALA Council in January 2023. The goal of this session is to bring together LIS faculty from across the curriculum to discuss how they are either currently incorporating the new competences into their courses or how they envision they could do this.
