Information management in the workplace

CHICAGO — In today’s workplace, technological developments have automated work processes that were previously done by manual labor even as new professions and work tasks have emerged in response to new methods of creating, sharing, and using information. “Information at Work: Information Management in the Workplace,” published by Facet Publishing and available through the ALA Store, provides a comprehensive account of information in the modern workplace. Edited by Katriina Byström, Jannica Heinström, and Ian Ruthven, it includes a set of chapters examining and reviewing the major concepts within workplace information, from over-arching themes of information cultures and ecologies, to strategic concerns of information management and governance, and to detailed accounts of questions and current debates.
