The blog

Our blog covers research findings, reports from industry events and conferences as well as more leftfield stories.  One of the most interesting events I attended this year was an interview with movie producer Tim Bevan.  His eloquent story of personal and business development in the movie industry had some valuable and transferable lessons from beyond the 'echo chamber' of librarianship.

One of the most tweeted and shared blog posts has been this one about a workshop for academics looking to maximise social media tools.  Another interesting lesson is from this post which suggests that you can simply ask for retweets.

The future

Just as there are hundreds of 'end of year lists' there are plenty of people predicting key trends to watch out for in 2013.  We really look forward to continuing to bring you news and stories in 2013 that aim to reflect the real world facing information professionals, whatever their sectoral or role focus. 

Do let us know if you are interested in writing for us for 2013.  We'd be delighted to hear from you.

Thanks for being with us in 2012.  We all wish you a very happy new year.
