Competency Sets

The LSSC Program is comprised of ten competency sets that:

  • standardize expectations for academic and public library support staff;
  • give education providers guidance for developing courses or training curriculum; and
  • help employers articulate job requirements.

An LSSC candidate must achieve six of the ten – the three required competency sets and three more of the elective competency sets.  Candidates can achieve the competency sets by successfully completing approved courses.
