Taking the time to search for and identify trends in information management offers rich rewards: When patterns reveal themselves, we learn about the world in new ways.
Information surrounds us all, and especially in the corporate information center, where news, data, and insights have the power to transform thousands of lives as well as the future of the business. Taking the time to search for and identify trends in information management offers rich rewards: When patterns reveal themselves, we learn about the world in new ways.
In a recent webinar, Dr. Rachel Benzies, who leads the Scientific Literature Service for Syngenta R&D, a leading agriculture company, and Jill Shuman, who heads up the corporate library and Knowledge Management Centers at the US offices of Shire, a leading global biotechnology company, joined CCC’s Chris Kenneally for a discussion around the trends and challenges facing information managers.
Providing insights on the skills and resources necessary for success, Benzies and Shuman focused on three areas: Changes in technology that impact today’s information managers; skills needed in the evolving research-related workspace; and top trends information managers should prepare for in the coming year.
A chemist by training, Rachel Benzies worked as a project manager for two grant consortia at the University of Basel before joining Syngenta in 2013. Syngenta research and products help to improve global food security by enabling millions of farmers to make better use of available resources through world class science and innovative crop solutions.
In addition to her role at Shire, a leading global biotechnology company focused on serving people with rare diseases and other highly specialized conditions, Jill Shuman is an adjunct faculty member at the Tufts University School of Medicine, where she teaches courses in grant writing, searching the biomedical literature, and expository writing.
