SLA Past President Guy St Clair on Transforming Libraries

International library transformation company Soutron announces its sponsorship of a new SLA seminar discussing THE FIRST KNOWLEDGE-SHARING TOOL DESIGNED FOR SPECIAL LIBRARIES. The seminar is scheduled for Tuesday, June 16th, from 10:15 a.m. – 11:15 a.m. EST (3:15 p.m. – 4:15 p.m. GMT) at Boston Convention Centre, Room 206B, during the SLA 2015 Conference. SLA Past President Guy St. Clair (SMR International) will be the guest speaker.

Join Guy St. Clair as he discusses how the role of specialist librarians and information professionals is enhanced by their skills, competencies, and professional know-how to bring people together to provide Knowledge Services.

  • Learn about the first knowledge-sharing skills-and-expertise database designed exclusively for specialist librarians
  • Identify how your knowledge-sharing database enables you to implement Value Network Analysis (VNA), the best tool yet for connecting the specialized library with library clients
  • Understand why your experience and expertise with the company’s communication and knowledge-sharing habits position you for this critical boundary-less and cross-functional job

At this interactive seminar, Guy St. Clair will share his thoughts about the need for a unique, specially designed knowledge-sharing tool supporting excellence in knowledge services delivery. The development of this tool now completes the search for Knowledge Development, Knowledge Sharing, and Knowledge Utilization (KD/KS/KU) technology, greatly enhancing the role of the specialist librarian/research manager as the company’s knowledge thought leader.

During this session, Soutron (booth #821) will also briefly showcase the company’s cost effective enterprise information management solutions to demonstrate how you can enhance the economic value of your knowledge assets and improve personal productivity while reducing operating costs. The demo will highlight Soutron’s Skills and Expertise Database, included as a portal in the Soutron product or available separately as a stand-alone product.

All seminar attendees are eligible to receive a copy of Soutron publication: From Collections to Connections: Managing the Transformation of Libraries into the Digital Resource Centers of the Future, where Guy St. Clair outlines — in sharp detail —how specialist librarians and strategic information and knowledge professionals are positioned to lead the way in connecting content captured in collections (wherever located and however defined) to the people who will collaborate in using that content.
