C203 - Info Pro Skills for the Future

1:30 p.m. - 2:30 p.m.
DeAnza I & II (Portola)
Deb Hunt, Library Director, Mechanics' Institute & & Principal, Information Edge
Chris Orr, Information Services Manager, University of California
David Diamond, Director, Global Marketing, Picturepark & Author, DAM Survival Guide
Ruth A Kneale, Systems Librarian, DKIST, National Solar Observatory

The first presentation discusses how info pros are well- positioned to help design metadata schema, apply governance principles, and understand end-user needs such as searching and delivery of content. All of these strengths are essential to the success of a digital asset management (DAM) project. It emphasizes the skills to enhance your professional toolkit for DAM project readiness and gives examples of DAM librarians (e.g., in corporate marketing departments, museums, creative services). Kneale discusses how she wears three different systems hats: systems administrator, systems engineer, and systems librarian. She shares information about these three jobs and shows how the tools and skills of librarianship are used to add value to all areas of responsibility.
