    Some reflections on genre and knowledge organization 

    In this class, Pauline Rafferty will examine 'genre' in relation to knowledge organization,  with a particular focus on genre and cultural documentation.  It will examine the ways in which genre theory has been used as a frame through which to understand knowledge organization,  and the ways in which genre has been used as an epistemological foundation for organising cultural documentation.

    Instructions on how to join the virtual class will be sent to registrants two days prior to the class.

    MS Teams – the case for Information Architecture and Governance

     MS Teams is becoming ubiquitous in our organisations. It undisputedly offers a whole range of productivity tools for our colleagues including an easy entry point and focus for projects and topics, transparent conversations for all members of the team, keeping related conversations and documents together, along with providing management capabilities for collaboration, meetings, calling, and apps in one place with fairly simple administration.

    On the other hand, if ungoverned and unmanaged, MS Teams can exacerbate the growth of information silos, impeding effective information discovery, and hindering effective information and records management governance and oversight.

    This presentation seeks to address the issues and challenges organisations and information managers are facing with the introduction of MS teams, providing practical advice on how to address them, focusing on the developing a robust information architecture and governance .

    INTRODUCTION TO METATAXIS
    Metataxis is a consultancy specialising in information management and information architecture services, with extensive Office 365 and SharePoint experience, having worked on over 50 SharePoint projects over the last 18 years. We believe that an information architecture which supports user requirements and behaviours, and which is appropriate for the specific content, is the key to any successful information-based project. We also strongly believe that an information governance framework defining the information and data management principles is necessary to underpin the efficient and effective management of an organisation’s information and data, to support its core functions and activities, and to demonstrate compliance with its legal and regulatory obligations.
