Introduction to Information Access and Management

Those who work with information are known as Information Professionals (IP).  IPs commonly work with others and teamwork is essential in good and thorough information acquisition, access, processing, and management.  You see, information is so vast (and growing all the time) that there is literally infinite potential for engagement and involvement with others in accessing and managing information.

Information is an infinite product.  It is the only product that when you share it, it becomes even more valuable.  It is no secret that the brick and mortar world is increasingly digitizing.  Each time something from the analog world gets digitized an information object is created.  Yet, the only way the new information object can have any meaning or relevance is for it to be accessible and meaningfully integrated with all other information objects.  This sometimes places the freedom of information at odds with human-based systems of processing.

On the other hand, widget-based products are not infinite.  They need to have limits of production and engagement placed upon them in order for them to retain their value.  Traditional widget-based products are susceptible to dilution of value due to supply and demand dynamics which do not translate well to information.

We are in an Information Age.  This means that traditional brick and mortar commerce/exchange methodologies and economies of scale are transitioning to an increasingly digital world.  From the Semantic Web to the Internet of Things, information and its many systems and technologies are reshaping the very core of humanity’s ways of interaction.  Consequently, attempts to create proprietary information systems to replace traditional economic drivers is a difficult equation.

For example, most Information Professionals are acutely aware that it is becoming increasingly difficult to market information for profit as information seeks to be shared.  This leads to the need for information systems to develop relationships with for-profit technologies and monetization mechanisms.  This presents a whole new orientation to information which currently has no definitive or official response.  We, humans, are working our way through this important phase of the evolution of our civilization.

Further, we humans are by nature a sharing species.  We want to share information with each other.  It is contrary to our nature to not share information.  However, as we are learning, we discover that there are instances when sharing information is not in our best interest or in the best interest of our organizations.  In those cases, we tend to develop information security practices that compartmentalize information and regulate access.  This provides roadblocks and bottlenecks which complicate the transition to information-based commerce.

So, how do we go about maximizing the potential of the infinite product and yet provide an economy which works with both value and sharing and its many complexities?  The accomplishment of a solution to this quandary is precisely what IAM Platform has set as its goal to achieve.  Every day we learn more and apply that knowledge to real products and services which enhance humanity’s ability to find new ways to maximize the potential of information.  As your fellow humans, we invite you to engage with us in this endeavor.  You don’t have to be a formally trained Information Professional to benefit from engaging with the IAM Platform.  We all produce, acquire, process, access, and manage information in our own ways.  That being said, an Information Professional knows the history and theory of Information systems, Science, and Technology and is helpful in providing context and holistic solutions to information acquisition, processing, and management.  Ultimately, the information totality must be cohesive or it is simply meaningless.

What is IAM Network?

Information Access and Management Network is the world’s fastest-growing Information Professional (IP) network and it is just one of the Products and Services on the IAM Platform.  Currently comprised of over 60,000 engaged information professionals worldwide, IAM Network is the world’s largest organization of information professionals. We work tirelessly to build more and more ways in which all types of information workers can join and participate in the IAM Network..

We are Information Architects, Librarians, Archivists, Curators, Catalogers, Semantic Modelers, Data Analysts, Systems Analysts, Software, Web, and Mobile Developers and lay information technicians who substantially work with information.  IPs work from home, some work on the go, and some work in organizations and institutions.  Our mission is to provide a place where anyone involved with information can go for support, tools, and marketplaces.
