Roles, skills and training for Knowledge Organization
Abstract: What part will knowledge organization (KO) play in our ability to find and manage information in the future, whether it’s on websites, document management systems, collaboration systems, corporate intranets, or even on shared drives? What sort of roles will be needed to cope with the ever increasing amounts of information that we’re dealing with, and how do we prepare ourselves for these roles? Do university courses and other institutions reflect the needs of the market in their syllabus, and what other ways are there to improve our skills?
As reported below, all the above issues were discussed on March 14, not just by the speakers but also by an audience keen to see expansion and more recognition of knowledge organizing roles. Links to the slides and audio recordings of all the speakers can also be found below.
