In the first episode of 2019’s Summer
season, Leah welcomes our new host, Carol
Apollo-Kennedy, Social Media Manager of The
Charleston Conference and Against the Grain. We open with a
quick introduction of Carol followed by the opening keynote of
2018’s Charleston Conference, presented by Annette
Thomas, the Chief Executive Officer of the Scientific &
Academic Research business of Clarivate Analytics.
We live in the age of the web. For information professionals in
particular, this has been the defining fact of the last 25 years.
It has enabled ever greater quantities of research to be published,
expanded the range of media we can use, and offered new
possibilities for recognizing and rewarding research contributions.
But such opportunities also bring challenges and pitfalls. If we do
the right things, this could be a golden age for research, but to
make the most of it we must embrace the original principles that
made the web itself such a powerful force.
