The Professional Knowledge and Skills Base (PKSB) for Health outlines the broad range of knowledge and skills required by librarians and knowledge specialists working in health. It enriches the original Chartered Institute of Library and Information Professionals (CILIP) PKSB by adding examples from a health setting throughout.
What should you use it for?
The PKSB helps you map your knowledge and skills. You can use it as a self-assessment tool for professional development and to demonstrate your unique skill set to employers. It is also a framework for skills analysis, staff training and development plans.
