Reporting on the Knowledge Organisation Competencies Project

More info here.

Matt Moore and Patrick Lambe developed a draft competency framework for knowledge organization professionals in support of the inaugural “Innovations in Knowledge Organization” conference held in Singapore in June 2015. With the support of ISKO we then tested this framework within the larger professional community through a global survey attracting almost 150 responses from knowledge organisation professionals and researchers around the world. In this session we discuss the findings of the survey, and the key development areas, gaps and development opportunities we identified. The findings will help those working on knowledge organisation roles identify gaps and self development opportunities, and it will help those working in KO teaching and research roles to identify useful areas of focus. We will also report on the planned next steps in this research project. We will then break out into workshop discussion to identify the implications for professionals working in knowledge organization.
