This workshop will address ways of improving discovery and discoverability of information and other resources through different approaches. It will draw upon case studies to illustrate the options and their pros and cons and then lead into an interactive discussion as to how ISKO, as an example of a small-scale organisation, might improve its digital offer. Outcomes should be a learning experience for anyone faced with similar concerns and some indications as to how the ISKO digital strategy might develop.
The workshop will be led by John Akeroyd currently an Honorary Research Fellow at UCL School of Information Studies and Associate Consultant with CIBER Research, a research and consultancy organisation who focus on digital information in the library and publishing domain. Akeroyd has recently worked on contracts with the British Library, the NHS and the ISSN HQ in Paris and will draw on these for case studies. He is also current chair of the UDC consortium.
This meeting is part of the consultations on the future of ISKO's digital strategy. It is free to attend.
