Announcing a new book

The School of Information Management is proud to announce the publication of a new book by staff members Dan Dorner and Philip Calvert and retired staff member Gary Gorman.

This book is aimed at information professionals such as librarians, web designers and records managers who are responsible for ensuring their organisation is providing effective service and appropriate information resources to meet their clients’ needs.

The structure of the book follows a logical sequence, defining the key concepts, identifying the types of information needs analyses and the stages involved, then explaining the different methods for gathering the necessary information, analysing it and reporting on the findings.

The book offers the necessary professional skills and techniques to develop an information needs analysis strategy, and its content is relevant to information managers in all areas including academic, public, government, commercial and other specialist library and information services.
