The Association for Information Management
In order to better meet changing professional needs, as of 1 January 2015 ASLIB will focus its efforts on expanding its professional development programme. As a result, ASLIB membership and associated benefits* will end on 31 December 2014. Subscription to Managing Information and Privacy and Data Protection: Managing Information Matters will also end on 31 December 2014 and the magazines will no longer be published.
This will affect:
Earlier this year ASLIB carried out a research exercise that gathered feedback from ASLIB Members, Subscribers and other key stakeholders, along with analysis of market trends. The output indicates that in today's digital world there is lessening demand for member associations. Feedback also suggests that there is still a requirement for professional development. This provides ASLIB with an opportunity to further develop its core offering, providing a more effective way for it to support the changing needs of information professionals today and in the future.
ASLIB will aim to offer an enhanced collection of learning opportunities for the information management community. It will build on existing open, on-site and one-to-one formats by taking advantage of digital technologies to deliver webinars, e-learning and virtual courses, amongst others.
Please remember to connect with ASLIB on its LinkedIn Group. From January 2015, members of the group will benefit from exclusive privileges to ASLIB training packages, including a standard 10 per cent discount on training for 2015.
