In the Digital Age, What Becomes of the Library? | The Information Specialist's Scoop | Scoop.it

As for virtual librarians, Capizzo suggests that what a real librarian does is more useful. “Would you ask, ‘What makes teachers so vital to schools?’” she asked. “Librarians are committed to promoting lifelong learning in order to create a community of well-informed individuals. Librarians are catalysts to enlightenment for their communities.”

Libraries Changed My Life

Libraries Changed My Life | The Information Specialist's Scoop | Scoop.it
Real life accounts from library patrons whose lives have been changed for the better by libraries.

 

Libraries Changed My Life (LCML) is the brainchild of two librarians from two parts of the country. Ingrid is a children’s and teen librarian from New York City. Natalie is a systems librarian from rural Florida. Together we’re hoping to create a place where people can tell their library stories, and those who are questioning the value of libraries can see their amazing impact. LCML is an independent, grassroots movement to spread library love across the country.

Why we’re here:

Libraries are valuable—and valued. In addition to traditional services like book lending, research help and children’s programs (still the services Americans value most), libraries offer free wifi, technology training, free or low-cost public meeting spaces, affordable printing, access to music and the arts, and other services our neighborhoods need.

I think that video technology will be even more pervasive than today in collecting, connecting and sharing intelligence, more immediately, person to person and person to group. I agree that primary collection will continue its decline since more will be available digitally. Hopefully the quality will be better than what's out there today.

Communicating Knowledge Management (KM) to Busy Lawyers | LawyerKM

Communicating Knowledge Management (KM) to Busy Lawyers | LawyerKM | The Information Specialist's Scoop | Scoop.it
I am constantly reminded of the importance of communicating effectively.  And I am repeatedly convinced that a simple message delivered in a simple way is most ("Communicating Knowledge Management (KM) to Busy Lawyers" by @LawyerKM

 

Connections  Are the Key…

My favorite (and primary) way to communicate KM to lawyers — and the representation in the KM card, above — is to speak in terms of connections.  It’s about “connecting people with people, connecting people with knowledge and information, and the processes, procedures, and technologies required to make those connections.”  I like this approach because it is broad, yet meaningful.  It allows me to talk about various aspects of KM from culture to technology, without eyes glazing over.

I carry the KM cards with me at work (and elsewhere).  When I need to explain KM to someone, I talk about connections.  After my elevator speech, I hand them a card as a take-away mnemonic.   “Here’s an easy way to remember what we do,” I say,  “the KM department’s email address is on the back.”

The more “complex” definitions of KM are fine when talking to people in KM circles and getting into the depths of knowledge management, but when talking to busy lawyers, spouting some convoluted, jargon-bloated, “nonsense” is the surest way to lose their attention.  Lawyers are no strangers to jargon.  They know it — and will reject it (and you) — the second they hear it.

Knowledge Management | 5 Keys to Enterprise Knowledge Management | The Information Specialist's Scoop | Scoop.it

With the rise of search, brand transparency and agile channeling, corporate knowledge can no longer be contained within an organization’s pre-determined boundaries; it must become an infinite, available and ever-evolving resource. Three little words have turned enterprise knowledge management, and specifically information and knowledge related to customer service, on its head in recent years: "Just Google It." A recent study from Fleishman-Hillard found that 89 percent of consumers go directly to business websites or turn to Google, Bing, or another search engine to find information on products, services or businesses before any human to human interaction takes place, if it ever does.
