The value of and need for information professionals in a corporate environment is being argued in this interesting discussion from the Answer Maven blog in their post, “Information Professionals: High Value Investments for Corporate Workplaces.”

Information professionals deliver services that add value to the bottom line. It is that simple. The author encourages information professionals to stop devaluing their services and contributions. To accomplish what we are asked to do requires advanced degrees. Combine that with our knowledge and experience, and therein lies the value added service to build solid taxonomies, define classifications, and index content so that it is indeed findable with ease and speed. All of the work we do makes it easy for our clients to do theirs.

It is important to choose the right partners in technology, especially when your content is in their hands. Access Innovations is known as a leader in database production, standards development, and creating and applying taxonomies.
