      Release-authorised: UKeiG Annual Seminar: 'Riding the waves or treading water? Confronting the challenges of a volatile electronic environment'

      **Apologies for cross posting**

      UKeiG announces its Annual Seminar on 13th June 2007
      The UKeiG Annual Seminar brings together a group of experts to share with us some of their thoughts on key issues for the information professional. This year the topic focuses on the constantly changing technologies and offers insight on how to keep professionally aware in this challenging environment.

      Non-members as well as members of UKeiG are welcome.

      There will also be a short AGM for members only at 13.50 pm.

      UKeiG Annual Seminar
      'Riding the waves or treading water?   Confronting the challenges of a volatile electronic environment'

      Bloomsbury Suite, Brunei Gallery, SOAS, Thornhaugh Street, Russell Square, London WC1H 0XG

      Wednesday, 13 June 2007 Wednesday, 9.15 - 16.30

      Seminar Outline
      The aim of the day will be to highlight and discuss key pressure points on e-information professionals at a time when rapidly changing technologies are forcing us to make tough decisions on service prioritisation. Every day we face new innovations in IT and information retrieval, and it is increasingly difficult to see the wood for the trees. What resources will have the most relevance and impact on business processes and stakeholders in your workplace; which others are hype? A new generation of internet savvy professionals and information consumers are coming to the workplace with a very different skills set and interpretation of the digital landscape. How do we develop our training, support and resource delivery tools to accommodate this new generation? Similarly, what CPD strategies and directions for personal development should we consider to ensure that we retain our visibility and relevance in increasingly complex knowledge organisations?

      Who should attend
      This seminar is open to non-members as well as UKeiG members.  The programme will interest and engage information professionals from all sectors and with all levels of responsibility.
