The Knowledge Audit is gaining prominence within the information profession as a whole–not just the knowledge management

Knowledge assets include both tangible and intangible assets

Knowledge assets include both tangible and intangible assets

disciplines–and for good reason. It is an effective way to understand the information assets of an organization, assess the information needs and demands across multiple departments, and develop a strategy to maximize the knowledge center’s potential impact. And, not to be underrated, an effective Knowledge Audit is an excellent way to market the information center across your organization while delivering a valuable, productive experience to colleagues.

Tune-in to An Ethnographic Approach to the Knowledge Audit to hear our speaker’s own method of using participant observation to conduct a successful knowledge audit, then describe how he used the results to develop a more thorough understanding of individual, departmental, and organizational practices.

If users and patrons are so used to the Google search interface, then why fight it? Register for Outgoogling Google to learn how the National Library of Scotland is implementing a Google-type interface to deliver content.  Information seekers can now search across multi-format library collections using a single search box.  The result?  An easy, seamless search experience for users and a shorter learning curve for all.

The Virtual Conference kicks off in less than 48 hours. We hope to ‘see’ you there!
