Special Libraries Association Series on Tasks for Modern Info Pros

The SLA (Special Libraries Association) published a report in 2013 called The Evolving Value of Information Management that identified 12 key tasks that information professionals must develop.

The President of the SLA and other association members blogged about those tasks in late 2014:
"On 31 October 2014, then-SLA President Kate Arnold kicked off a new series of blog posts on the 12 tasks for modern information professionals. The 12 tasks (...) provide a concise and actionable summary of the ways that information professionals create value for their organizations."

"Following Kate’s posts, four SLA members discussed the ways they have embodied the 12 tasks in their work and provided tips for taking similar actions (...)"
They addressed issues such as:
  • understanding the business of your institution and colleagues
  • proactively creating solutions
  • the importance of networking and connections
  • the challenge of working with reduced resources
The SLA will begin publishing a series of new blog posts on the 12 tasks next week.
