Adding the right content to your current awareness platform

In my previous post on legal tech sources I enjoyed demonstrating what I want to explain in this post. A recent Jinfo webinar got me thinking about the question of “How do you get relevant external content into your intelligence platform?” In short, the answer was ‘ask your information person’.

Team Vable get asked about content all the time; some questions are technology based and fairly clear-cut. But source assessment requires a certain level of specialist knowledge. Not only do you have to have an excellent understanding of your organisation’s underlying business goals, but also you will need to know which sources are relevant to their information needs.

The biggest challenge facing libraries and information services today

Communications and promotion are the biggest challenges that information professionals face today. This is why centralised automated current awareness is a vital service. We conducted a short survey exploring how library job titles had changed over time, as well as what goes on behind that title in the Librarian’s role itself. Although the sample size was relatively small, the results speak a lot to what we are seeing across the information industry at the moment.
