SOFTLINK COMMISSIONS RESEARCH INTO LIBRARIANS’ ROLE IN KNOWLEDGE MANAGEMENT
Launching at L+iS, April 2006
Library and knowledge management system specialist, Softlink Europe, has
commissioned further research into external and internal information
managed by librarians in the corporate sector. Gathering, organising,
storing and sharing information and knowledge assets from within and
outside the organisation is a core element of knowledge management. The
paper will be launched at the Softlink stand no. 626 at the Library +
Information Show in April 2006.
To take part in the research, please contact [log in to unmask] or
telephone 0208 655 0953 before the end of March.
Director of Softlink Europe, Iain Dunbar, explains, “Softlink has an
active programme of research and development and we want to ensure that
our development pipeline matches the future requirements of our
customers. We are also keen to ensure that our existing products meet
current demands and regularly seek feedback from our customers via direct
communication such as user groups and one-to-one visits. The research will
complement this by enabling us to gather views from a cross-section of
corporate librarians across the charity, health and legal sectors.”
