Practical tools for survival beyond 2013 Driving organizational improvement in the digital information economy

First in a series of Workshops – Oxford, UK – 31 January 2013 – by InfoEthicsUK and Greynet International.

Librarians and information professionals live and work in challenging economic times. Their organizations must be nimble, proactive and innovative as they emerge from the downturn. The knowledge worker’s role is pivotal to ensure survival. Grey literature – viewed in the past by some as peripheral – is now ever more relevant.  Now more than ever is the time to understand it.
