UKeiG Annual Seminar

Web 2.0 in action: Practical implementation in the workplace

Bloomsbury Suite, Brunei Gallery, SOAS, Thornhaugh Street,

Russell Square, London WC1H 0XG

Thursday, 12th June 2008

Seminar Outline

Web 2.0 is tagged onto a variety of internet-based tools and systems.  These tools can help integrate resources and share knowledge, but in many instances there needs to be a change in organisational culture for successful implementation.  How do you practically implement Web 2.0 in the workplace? How do you encourage and enable a library community of users to participate to enhance the efficiency of your organisation.  The aim of the day will be to highlight and showcase Web 2.0 technologies in action, focusing on case studies from across the electronic information sector that show how Web 2.0 is being effectively used within the workplace. 

Who should attend

This seminar is open to non-members as well as UKeiG members.  The programme will interest and engage information professionals from all sectors with responsibility for enhancing organisational efficiency.  It will be of equal interest to students studying library & information science as librarians, information specialists and library managers and those with responsibility for improving library services. 

Speakers include:

Mike Watson Managing Director, Ektron Europe Limited.  Mike oversees Ektron's fast growing operations in Europe, managing a team providing sales, technical training, support and professional services.  He has online experience in both the information and creative
areas of organizational life.  Ektron is a web content management and authoring solutions which provides a set of social networking tools and fully supports all Web 2.0 functionality including open API.
