If you are interested in looking at skills profiles (which the EDISON framework 
is) then I would also recommend the EOSCPilot skills and capabilities framework:

https://www.eoscpilot.eu/content/d73-skills-and-capability-framework

It builds on the work that EDISON did and makes it more general. In particular 
it looks at the skills needed by those who are called data stewards or data 
custodians, which is a role not identical to that of the data librarian but 
which has a considerable overlap.

In the interests of openness I should declare that I and some of my colleagues 
are co-authors of this work along with other partners in the EOSCPilot project.

>>  From everything I gathered, this new assignment of specialized librarians, let that be caring "data" prefix is linked to the late 60', begining of the 70's when the "data centres" started to serve the social sciences. Indeed, we are able to track back the need for a specialization within the ranks of those data keepers able to put a humanized face on the growing numbers. Tradition of organizing information hoardings is librarianship, hence a deep need to upgrade (through data literacy) of curious ones.
