"Defining Data Librarianship: A Survey of Competencies, Skills, and Training"

Lisa Federer has published "Defining Data Librarianship: A Survey of Competencies, Skills, and Training" in the Journal of the Medical Library Association.

Here's an excerpt:

Respondents considered a broad range of skills and knowledge important to their work, especially “soft skills” and personal characteristics, like communication skills and the ability to develop relationships with researchers. Traditional library skills like cataloging and collection development were considered less important. A cluster analysis of the responses revealed two types of data librarians: data generalists, who tend to provide data services across a variety of fields, and subject specialists, who tend to provide more specialized services to a distinct discipline.
