Content and technology for current awareness (we used to call it "news delivery")

Jinfo Research Focus
July - September 2016

Single-product approaches to current awareness are no longer adequate to meet users' needs or expectations but there's a continuing demand for current awareness, and the demand must be met and the investment justified.

Content and technology for current awarenessThis Research Focus, which ran from July to September 2016, was designed to enable you to recognise, and act on, emerging best practices for evaluation of content and technology to support and enhance current awareness in your organisation.

The must-read findings and actions from this Focus are:

  • Current awareness planning must start with the "why"
  • Opting out of current awareness provision is a viable choice
  • Smart decisions on current awareness require data.

Each of these key insights is discussed in detail in the Insights and actions report from the Research Focus "Content and technology for current awareness", along with actions you can take to work towards creating a current awareness service that best suits your situation.
