As the amount of content created and acquired in electronic format continues to increase, establishing the knowledge and skills necessary for the job is essential for electronic resources librarians. New librarians are entering this emerging field, but are they well equipped to perform the duties of an electronic resources librarian? Two librarians share their experiences transitioning from the world of library school to applied work experience as electronic resources librarians. What gaps arose in their knowledge, and what training could have been useful? Using NASIG's Core Competencies for Electronic Resources Librarians as a guide, the presenters will discuss what they learned in library school, what they learned on the job, and how library schools and organizations can better prepare e-resources librarians for the future.
