  Westlaw - Lit Solutions 2014
 

James Mullan, The Running Librarian, features a great article by Gerry McGovern in his blog post, Are you a digital bridge builder?. For those of you who may not know of Gerry McGovern, he is one of the earliest web pioneers. As his bio (a link is available in James' post) will tell you, he began his web career in 1994 and "The Irish Times described Gerry as one of five visionaries who have had a major impact on the development of the Web." So, you can say, "He know's of which he speaks."

Moving on, while he uses mixed metaphors of silos and bridges, his point remains strong - intranet managers connect disparate knowledge no matter where it sits in the organization. He's really talking about knowledge management (KM) which leaves the intranet a delivery tool for KM.

Now, if there's one thing I know from growing up with a grandfather who was an actual bridge builder and then marrying one, it is that bridge building is a very hard job. Becoming involved in managing intranets may not be as technically or physically demanding but the demands on those who take it on may be even more difficult because it requires making connections with people and having conversations that may lead to change.

Susannah Tredwell, Slaw, takes on one of my favorite topics - the importance of indexes in her blog post, Indexes: Still Necessary in the Age of E-Books. Think of how wonderful navigation within an eBook would be if it had not only Tables of Content but also indexes. Some would say that you can just search the ebook for the terms that are contained within an index but a simple search misses the things that make an index useful - the abilities to browse through terms to find what you need or to get ideas for terms to use if you search. They also provide the "see also" and "see instead" which can get a reader to the right term if needed.
