In 1990 at a newspaper library, we thought it was pretty amazing when we went from cutting the papers up by hand and filing them in cardboard envelopes to formatting text on green screens into a database that allowed the unimaginable number of up to ten people to read the same article at the same time.
In 2014, Soutron Global's cloud-based specialized libraries leave those green screens in the dust. Soutron's webinar series "Transforming Libraries" makes the case for their service while also presenting topics on specialized libraries, knowledge management and knowledge services — and the growing usefulness of all of those in the business world.
Soutron, a cloud-based library, knowledge and information management solutions provider, has been running this series since Feb. 2013, plenty of time to get the bugs out. But some glitches in the presentation and the sound quality for the in-house speakers leave something to be desired and might discourage some viewers.
The most recent of these webinars was lead primarily by Guy St. Clair, president of SMR International, a New York City-based consultancy practice focused on knowledge management, knowledge services and the role of knowledge strategy in organizational effectiveness.
