Information Technology (IT) for Information Professionals

Earlier this week I attended this course, which was organised by the Commercial Legal and Scientific Sub-Group of CILIP. The course is one of three being organised by CLSIG over the course of the next few months as part of their "Professional Development Club"

The course was held at Macfarlanes, so I shouldn't have really been surprised when most of the attendees turned out to be from Law Firms. Unfortunately I was slightly disappointed by the course, the presenter certainly new about IT Infrastructure and it was interesting to see how requests people make to view web pages are actually carried out but I didn't feel he really addressed how we as Information Professionals should be dealing with/talking to our I.T Departments which can be a big issue for many Information Professionals.

Slides from this seminar are available on Slideshare here.
