As part of Jinfo's Research Focus, "Content and technology for current awareness", we have a range of webinar and Community sessions available to help you gain information on areas from content platforms to new sources and the increasing importance of data analytics.


Content and technology for current awarenessContent and technology for news delivery has previously been tightly woven together. However our research and work with customers has shown that there is an increasing need to evaluate content needs separately from the technology through which that content is delivered.

As part of Jinfo's Research Focus "Content and technology for current awareness", we're hosting webinar and Community sessions, focusing on practical tips and discussion to help you and your team implement best practice in this area.

Here is an overview of what's on offer, to help you book time in your diary and plan how each session can support your work. To find out more information about a specific session and register, just click the title link.

Understanding the Full Scope of Sources for Current Awareness

Tuesday 13th September

A "source" is no longer simple a news source, when it comes to current awareness. Internal content and non-traditional news sources are increasingly becoming essential streams for current awareness. This webinar will provide practical tips on how to move beyond our traditional understanding of sources to help bring users meaningful content.
