Subject:   Revised Qualification Standard for GS-1410, Librarian Series

Attached is a copy of the revised qualification standard for the GS-1410, Librarian series that was developed in conjunction with the Federal Library and Information Center Committee (FLICC).

Effective immediately, the new standard can be used when filling positions with applicants who are not currently competitive service, GS-1410 employees. However, we are providing a 6-month period for full agency implementation of these new requirements when filling positions from the outside, in order to accommodate situations where you may need some additional time. Therefore, agencies should implement the standard as soon as possible, but no later than June 1, 2001.

The new standard will be incorporated into the Operating Manual for Qualification Standards for General Schedule Positions as it appears on the Office of Personnel Management's web site at http://www.opm.gov/qualifications/. If you have any questions, please contact Cynthia Diane at (202) 606-1696.
