Preparing Information Professionals for an Uncertain and Rapidly Changing Future

Friday, September 30, 2016, 2:00 PM – 3:30 PM EDT


“So Who’s Managing All that Organizational Information Anyway” was the title of an ASIS&T Workshop in 2015.  This Webinar continues and extends that discussion, which encompassed the degree requirements and continuing education for information professionals

Information Management Professionals include those involved with libraries/museums, archives, knowledge managers, records management and “data processing.”  All of them have the responsibility to collect, organize and provide accurate and timely information to consumers be they internal or external to their organization.  Adding value to that information is always a challenge.

How do we prepare our students for these career?   How do we prepare our users, patrons and customers to find and interpret the information?  What is the impact of future technical, organizational, and social tools and channels to make that information more effective.  How much investment to make in the accessibility of this information for generations to come?

This webinar will explore these questions and review the technical trends, organization cultures (structures, processes, and leadership) and social directions that will impact how we teach current and future professionals in information management.

Come prepared to actively participate in this webinar!
