ABSTRACT

The study aims at identifying professional competencies of collection development librarians in academic libraries. For this, the study collected data through qualitative interviews with 8 librarians who are in charge of collection development programs in four-year university libraries. As a result, the professional competency components emerging from interviews were divided into three parts; knowledge in library and information science, knowledge in subject field, and professionalism. Detailed components of three parts of professional competency were divided into 13 sub-categories, with 37 meanings. It is expected that the study as an exploratory research may provide further research to design educational and training programs for collection development librarians with basic data.
