#SLAtalk Roundup: Become a Crucial Associate—Tasks for Modern Info Pros

How do you learn new tech skills? Where do you find inspiration to create solutions for your workplace? How do you demonstrate ROI? What do you do to ensure your patrons know about the full range of services you offer?

To answer these questions, SLA conducted two #SLAtalk Twitter chats on October 28. The chats were inspired by the SLA/Financial Times report, The Evolving Value of Information Management, which was published earlier this year. The report recommends 12 tasks that should be performed by modern info pros; SLA’s Public Relations Advisory Council (PRAC) selected 4 of the 12 to serve as topics for the hour-long chats.

To read what our chat participants had to say—for example, that word of mouth is the best way to publicize your services, that your clients can be your best source of inspiration for new ideas, and that knowing the culture of your organization is the key to operating effectively—view the tweets on Storify:
