Access to information is no longer a problem—managing the information onslaught is! The Web offers great tools for increasing your efficiency, but only if you know where to look and how to use them. This helpful and informative crash course in information management will introduce you to both the “standards” (RSS feeds and social bookmarking) and the cutting edge (My6Sense and Greplin), and take you from white belt to ninja in an hour and half.

Transcript

  • 1. Tips & tricks for managing information onslaughtKimberley R. Barker, Emerging Technology Librarian
  • 2.  White belt: learn how to make information come to you Blue belt: learn how to manage the ifnormation once it’s streaming in Ninja: learn how to meta-manage & customize the information
  • 3. Warning! It usually takes more than one session to become an information management expert.Individual consults with librarian-ninjas are available, so don’t hesitate to contact us if you would like to schedule a time to meet.
  • 4. Let’s get started!
  • 5. White belt training includes:•RSS feeds•Search alerts•Social bookmarking
  • 6.  RSS Feeds/Atom  “Really Simple Syndication”  Visiting websites is like going to a restaurant; subscribing to feeds is like getting delivery.
  • 7. http://www.google.com/alerts*Alerts are a standard feature ofmost search engines. Google isbut one example.
  • 8.  Social bookmarking  “… a method for Internet users to organize, store, manage and search for bookmarks of resources online.” – Wikipedia  Accomplished through tagging: “…the process by which many users add metadata in the form of keywords to shared content.” (Golder & Huberman)
  • 9.  Allows you to:  access your bookmarks from anywhere (device & internet connection)  easily share information  perform more focused searching (but beware the folksonomy!)
  • 10.  Bookmark any site on the Internet, and get to it from anywhere Share your bookmarks, and get bookmarks in return Discover the most useful and interesting bookmarks on the web  http://www.delicious.com/help/about My favorite features:  Easy-to-use interface  Browser add-on makes tagging quick and easy  Ability to create tag bundles, tag subscriptions, and networks  Delicious is very popular (the more people who use a site and tag content, the better it is)
  • 11. Let’s get started!
  • 12.  Evernote Citation management software Annotation software
  • 13.  Program that allows you to:  Gather information (photos, e-mails, websites, notes, screenshots, etc)  Organize it (automatically processes, indexes and makes searchable; you can further organize with tags and folders)  Retrieve info via tags, titles, and keywords– even within images  Share your information with others: all of it, or some of it
  • 14.  Three ways to access  Log in at Evernote.com  Download Evernote to your computer and open the program  From your mobile device *Warning: the three interfaces are fairly different, and not as intuitive as they could be.
  • 15.  “… software for scholars and authors to use for recording and utilising bibliographic citations “– Wikipedia  Examples  Mendeley  Zotero  Refworks  Endnote  Papers
  • 16.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comparison_of _reference_management_software
  • 17.  iAnnotate-iPad PDF Xchange Viewer- Windows PC Preview- Mac
  • 18.  “Freemium”- Free version includes:  Add comments and annotations  Mark up pages  Type directly on the pdf  Extract text  Send pdf’s via email from within Viewer  Compatable with Windows 2000 & later
  • 19.  Mac  “…offers essential editing capabilities, such as resizing, rotation and cropping, and even lets you annotations to share your comments.”  Annotate, add keywords, and documents are automatically indexed- find with OSX’s Spotlight search engine  Comes standard on a Mac, just as Safari does (Within Preview, Tools menu -> Annotate)
  • 20. GreplinMy6senseKnow About It
  • 21.  Indexes information that you create in places like Gmail, Twitter and Facebook, and provides a search engine for it Keep everything in one place- no more multiple log-ins in search of a piece of information
  • 22. “…a mobile RSS reader that syncs with your GoogleReader account (all of it, not just the first one thousandfeeds like so many imitations!) and then watches howyou interact with the items. It knows when you arereading, it knows when you’ve shared a link. It thenoffers two views of all your subscriptions: their mostrecent posts and the My6Sense recommended posts. Theservice learns from your behavior over time and offers aquality mobile feed reading experience.” -- ReadWriteWeb
  • 23. How it workscollects links found in your social “streams” and sends them to youmakes recommendations based on what you are already doingwithin social networks
  • 24.  You have wrestled the bears of information and stood in the icy streams of organizational management. YOU ARE NOW AN IM NINJA!
