While the World Wide Web is no longer a new technology, the changes it has created in our work-space, our industry, of full-information management and library services are nothing less than magnanimous. Almost every business, in every industry is now faced with new challenges to move forward, using a combination of technology and personnel, to preserve, protect and increase the accessibility of your assets, all while juggling a shrinking budget from these hard economic times. Each week, I will introduce a new “Hot Topic”, including the cost and operational efficiencies, and return-on-investment for the many technologies and methodologies available to you. I encourage you to speak out freely and often, and to claim your place around our round-table discussions. I am excited to host this virtual journey for our industry professionals, to educate, and to learn. We have a real opportunity to make a difference in our future…together.
This week, I am addressing the concept of digitization, also known as digitizing your assets, the “pros”, and the “cons”. Please feel free to check-in here by introducing yourself, and posting your comments, questions, and/or ideas on how to make our time together each week the most productive, and beneficial to you.
“Life is like a library owned by an author. In it are a few books which he wrote himself, but most of them were written for him.” – Harry Emerson Fosdick
