Welcome to the BC Libraries Staff Competencies Learning Matrix!

The matrix is part of the Professional Learning for Public Libraries –Online Learning Project; a partnership of the North East, North Central and Kootenay Library Federations. We gratefully acknowledge the financial support of the Province of British Columbia through the Ministry of Education.

With this online tool, employees, supervisors and hiring managers have access to the Competency Index for the Library Field * in a self-browsing format that allows for greater ease in navigating competency categories and related skills. Competencies are also matched with available training resources and associated skills to help employees meet specific competency expectations and fulfill personal learning plans.
