Blog - Improve your Current Awareness Strategy

How can non-market intelligence help my organisation?

Competitive intelligence research is a standard requirement for most library and information professionals. Whether it’s a basic snapshot or in-depth analysis of the competitor landscape, it is something that we have all had to do. The CI reports we help create offer our organisations a perspective on changing market conditions so that management can identify risks and opportunities early enough to adapt or change strategy.

Current Awareness: where tech and fake news meet

The information industry has never been more aware of the importance of current awareness provision. Keeping up to date with news, markets, clients, and industries is central to the success of all types of organisations - from legal, financial services, health, or the third sector. Information and research services, or equivalent, are generally responsible for managing and delivering accurate, reliable, and targeted updates for their end-users.

SLA 2016 - The value of the Indispensable Librarian

There’s no rest for the wicked, or so the saying goes. That’s certainly true for us here at Linex, as soon as BIALL finished Matthew - our CEO - and I were on a plane bound for Philadelphia and SLA, excited to catch up with our US colleagues. We were looking forward to reacquainting ourselves with a conference full of such a broad range of attendees - from the Knowledge Manager to the Information Analyst - and SLA certainly didn’t disappoint.

Top Summer Events for Law Librarians (and why you should attend)

As the sun peeps further out from behind the clouds, conference season is soon to be upon us. This is such an exciting time of year, with so many opportunities on the horizon. For some, the thought of conferences, trade shows, annual meetings and the like may not invoke such enthusiasm but there are plenty of benefits to be had from attending these events.
