The Professional Knowledge and Skills Base (PKSB) was developed by the Chartered Institute of Library and Information Professionals (CILIP) (http:// in the UK through consultation with employers and the library and information community. It was later customised by the Library Association of Ireland (LAI) and is available free of charge to LAI members.
