Core Competencies for Professional Catalogers: draft document open for review

This will be old news for some of us, but just in case you haven’t heard (I was embarrassingly late seeing it myself), the ALCTS CaMMS Competencies and Education for a Career in Cataloging Interest Group has posted a draft document on cataloging competencies.  Comments can be left directly on the draft in Google Docs:

I am not sure how long the review period is—any reader who knows, please chime in with a comment here.  It is worth visiting the draft even if you don’t think you will have anything to say, both for the content of the document itself and for the many comments already added.

If you are interested in the work of the Interest Group, take a look at its website.
