The society of information has transformed the role of its members as well as has raised new ways of thinking and coping with reality. It has led professionals of all areas to think through their attributions, skills and responsibilities. In this context, school librarians began to rethink their position regarding professional performance, and then, information literacy or informational competence is inserted. This article aims to appraise competence and information competence and to reflect on these two concepts in the school librarian daily life, approaching technical, esthetical, ethical as well as political dimensions, emphasizing that the school librarian competency is analyzed in every dimension.
