UKeiG - innovation in e-Information: encouraging creative thinking and
discussion amongst information professionals

 

The information industry is in a continual state of change and
information professionals need to stay one step ahead of the game if
they are to be seen as champions for change and innovation in
organisations.

 

UKeiG is hosting 'Innovation in e-information' - a state of the art
conference on 16th-17th June 2009 - in order to drive this agenda
forward. The event will provide information professionals from across
the e-information industry with the opportunity to expand their skills
and knowledge; and to explore issues of strategic significance across
the industry, including the role that e-information professionals play
in adding value to the business and enhancing competitive edge through
innovation and creative thinking. 

 

This major UKeiG event will bring together experienced practitioners in
many fields of e-information to share and discuss the key issues
impacting on service delivery across all sectors. Active delegate
participation will be key with opportunities to discuss future issues,
share experiences and formulate practical, innovative solutions to
emphasise the pivotal role of information professionals in driving,
supporting and demonstrating effective information management.

 

Delegates will have the opportunity not just to receive expert guidance
on the important issues of the day and the future, but also to discuss
practical implementation in breakout sessions. There will also be plenty
of time for socialising and informal networking with drinks and a
conference dinner on the night of June 16th.

 

Since 1978 the UK eInformation group has been encouraging the exchange
of knowledge about electronic information. The programme will draw on
some of the key players and leading lights who have taken the group
forward over the years. Speakers include:

 

*         E4Enterprise: Understanding your customers' future needs. Jan
Wilkinson, University Librarian and Director of the John Rylands
University Library Manchester

*         Waves of Innovation: Signposts to a new web of information.

*         Managing digital images: Improving the customer experience.

University Library Services

*         The Long Arm of the E-law, or to put it another way - You can
run but can you hide? Laurence Bebbington, Faculty Team Leader,
University of Nottingham

*         Using a risk management approach to build successful
einformation business cases.  Martin White, Managing Director, Intranet
Focus Ltd

*         Making sense of Web 2.0: a personal and organisational
journey.  Ross Scrivener, Programme Manager, Royal College of Nursing

*         When social means business: the potential of social computing
tools to support collaborative work as part of the organisational
information infrastructure.  Hazel Hall, Reader, School of Computing,

Breakout sessions are intended to be topical, so may change. Currently
the themes are expected to be:

 

*         Innovative search techniques: how do you do yours?
Facilitator: Karen Blakeman

*         Avoiding legal problems. Risks and Rights - a discussion.
