Information Resource Management Program

Information Resource Management

Introduction

Libraries and information industries are now working in complex technological environments with a rapid expansion of digital resources and services. This development has resulted in an increased emphasis on technological skills as well as a demand from employers for graduates with expanded skill sets. These skill sets include a broad understanding of information management, as well as specific capabilities in managing digital resources as these affect research data, websites and social media. The ability to digitize analog resources to increase their accessibility and improve their management is also in demand. The demand for all these skills provides an important context as education in the library and information technology field moves beyond the traditional library setting to encompass a wide range of occupations in both the private and public sectors. All these changes have prompted Carleton University and Algonquin College to work together to develop a new program to meet the needs of a changing information economy.
