about

The Role of Information Professionals in the Knowledge Economy: Skills, Experiences, Practices and Strategies presents the tools that are necessary for the acquisition and development of a scientific culture. The work and profile of the information professional is no longer limited to the world of libraries.

In countries with developing and peripheral economies that are seeking to reduce dependence on knowledge generated by rich countries it is necessary to develop and foster new professional profiles with high expertise in knowledge generation and management in order to support such paradigm shifts.

This comprehensive book presents the case for this paradigm shift and is an ideal resource for information professionals who are interested in new avenues of exploration.

  • Promotes the idea that an information professional is the right person to offer support in the knowledge economy
  • Provides guidance on how to provide and develop a scientific culture in an institution
  • Identifies information competencies that are important for information managers in scientific communication
  • Redefines the profile of professional information graduates and identifies this new skillset as a job opportunity
