Thanks to web technology, an explosion of content showers us from every direction. Content curation is the buzzword de jour and on the surface seems as simple as aggregating and sharing interesting links and resources via various social media tools. The truth is, it’s not really quite that simple. Just ask a librarian…ever so quietly, of course.
As professional curators, librarians and their guiding principles offer valuable insight into effectively curating collections that do more than add repurposed information to an already cluttered web.
This talk outlines key concepts from library science that will help designers curate content better. Whether you are building killer websites, creating effective knowledge management tools, or driving mention-worthy social media conversations, this session will provide you with guiding principles you need to get it right.
