Core Competencies of Electronic Resources Librarianship Adopted as NASIG Policy

The NASIG Board approved and adopted “Core Competencies of Electronic Resources Librarianship” as NASIG policy at their June 2013 meeting in Buffalo, New York.

 Sarah Sutton, former chair of the Core Competencies Task Force (CCTF), notes that she and the CCTF have high hopes that both library and information professionals and LIS educators will find the document a valuable resource upon which to base their work. Sarah writes, “I am so gratified that many practitioners have already used the draft document, which circulated in the professional community over the past few months. It has sparked much interest and use, as evidenced by the wonderful sessions at the recent NASIG Annual Conference. I think the document supports NASIG’s Vision to promote dialogue and professional growth, to provide learning opportunities, to advocate for its constituents, to challenge assumptions and traditions, and to take a leadership role in the information environment.”

 “Core Competencies of Electronic Resources Librarianship” is available on the NASIG website, http://www.nasig.org/committee-core-competencies-task-force.cfm.

"Balance for Oil, Imbalance for LNG?" (recorded webcast) Center for Strategic & International Studies

https://www.csis.org/events/balance-oil-imbalance-lng

"The CSIS Energy and National Security Program is pleased to host Fereidun Fesharaki, Founder and Chairman of FGE, for a presentation and discussion on the current state of global oil and gas markets, one balancing as the other appears to tip toward imbalance.

Oil markets are struggling to reach a balance, and with robust demand growth and continued OPEC cutbacks, a balance might be reached in the 2017/2018 period. LNG markets are facing a prolonged period of imbalance, perhaps through about 2023, before a balance can be reached. While many advocate new U.S. LNG projects, around 50% of the projects currently under construction have still not been sold to end users.

Dr. Fesharaki's work is recognized worldwide for pioneering oil and gas market analysis since the early 1980s. Born in Iran, he received his Ph.D. in economics from the University of Surrey in England. He then completed a visiting fellowship at Harvard University’s Center for Middle Eastern Studies. He joined the East West Center in 1979, where he led the Energy program for two decades. FGE offices are spread around the world in 8 locations with heavy emphasis on Asia and the Middle East.
