Information Management

Information management is defined as: Collecting, organising, storing and exploiting information, data, expertise and other knowledge assets which are held within an organisation or network of organisations, ensuring that these assests remain available for future use.

Good information management skills, such as the effective storage, retrieval and dissemination of information, support all members of society. They are a vital part of the skills needed by library, information and knowledge management professionals.
