Series: CityLIS 'AfterHours' Research Seminar Series
We are living and working in the early days of an age that will be defined by access to information, knowledge and data. In this world, with the challenges of fake news, information inequality and digital channel-shift, the role of the ethical information professional is more important than it has ever been. Yet many people still lack a basic understanding of what ‘information’ is and why it needs to be invested in and managed as a vital asset, or indeed why this is the role of a trained and qualified professional.
In this session, CILIP Chief Executive Nick Poole will set out CILIP’s vision of the challenges and opportunities which lie ahead for our profession and how we can organise as a community to ensure that we secure our place at the heart of Britain’s social and economic development.
