is pleased to announce that it is sponsoring the newly-launched Knowledge Management Division
of the Special Libraries Association.
Launched in the fall of 2006, the SLA's Knowledge Management Division already has attracted nearly 500 members. The Division focuses on the characteristics and processes through which organizations facilitate the creation, sharing and use of knowledge.
Inmagic's overall sponsorship of the Knowledge Management Division includes support for two events at SLA's upcoming 2007 Annual Conference, to be held in Denver on June 3 - 6:
- "Librarians as Knowledge Managers: The View from the Executive Suite," a session exploring the unique contributions that librarians bring to high-visibility, interdepartmental knowledge management efforts
- A reception at the Denver Art Museum for SLA's University of Denver Student Group and the Denver SLA chapter that is hosting this year's Annual Conference
Karen K. Reczek, Manager, Information Resources Center at Bureau Veritas in Buffalo, New York, is the chair of SLA's Knowledge Management Division. Karen commented "We're delighted to be working with Inmagic. The company is a natural partner for our new Division, given its long history of technological leadership. Our Division members play critical roles within their organizations, including documenting knowledge for sharing and use. Effective knowledge management spans and the right technology is a powerful enabler."
Paul J. Puzzanghera, Inmagic's President and CEO, noted "Our sponsorship of the Knowledge Management Division continues Inmagic's lengthy association with and support of the SLA. Many Inmagic customers are SLA members. Our co-founder Betty Eddison held several leadership roles with the SLA, served as a role model for many SLA members, and received the organization's highest honor - its Hall of Fame Award in 2002. An affiliation with SLA's Knowledge Management Division is particularly synergistic for us, since many of our customers use Inmagic products for various knowledge management applications. Our newest products, Inmagic ® Presto
and Inmagic ® Genie
, provide unprecedented capabilities for information professionals who need to maximize their organizations' knowledge management capabilities."
