Programme Bibliotheksdienst 43. Jg. (2009), H. 3 337 The recent dramatic and downward turn of the global economy presents new challenges to information managers as many face multiple challenges: The finan- cial landscape is uncertain, changes are occurring in leadership, baby boomers are leaving the workforce to make way for millennials, Web 2.0 and 3.0 technolo- gies are changing user interactions, and publishing models are evolving – and all are becoming the new norms – for 2009. Librarians and information professionals are reviewing their visions and mission statements and key initiatives to ensure they are providing core, essential services and resources that accurately reflect the key objectives of their parent organiza- tion. As Isaac Asimov said, “the only constant is change”. We continue to live in rapid- ly changing times and yet being prepared for change can sometimes elude and overwhelm us. Information functions and libraries are more than ever finding themselves in the whirlwind of change. Please join Cindy Hill, Vice President Information Management Service from Outsell, the leading research and advisory firm for the information industry, to a seminar examining the factors of change during turbulent times. Cindy leads all aspects of Outsell’s Enterprise Information Management Services. She serves as an executive-level advisor and consultant to clients on issues such as state-of- the-art information management and services; integrating internal and external content; and Web 2.0 technologies. She leads the team that researches, analyzes, and writes about information professionals, enterprise information management best practices, and user needs. She will share with you how best to prepare and manage for change as well as explore some of the technological and social drivers of change in library and in- formation management functions. Also included will be data from Outsell’s No- vember 2008 User Needs Study which surveyed nearly 6,000 knowledge workers on their information needs and preferences. You will benefit from Outsell’s knowledge and experience in the library and in- formation management realm, proprietary research about library functions and knowledge workers, and the experiences of your peers in this interactive presen- tation. “If you don’t create change, change will create you!” (Anonymous) Referentin: Cindy Hill, VP, Information Management Services,, Kosten: 45,– € Anmeldung: bei Evelin Morgenstern, „Initiative Fortbildung … e.V.“ E-Mail:
