The Curator

Jump-starting 2018

Our first issue of the year is packed with readings on DAM success, new legal technologies, motion picture film and more! If none of that interests you, please tell us what topics you’d like to read about in 2018.

Do you believe in Blue Monday?

Blue monday

We’ve passed “Blue Monday,” the third Monday of the year and supposedly the most depressing day of the year—learn more in Wikipedia. What we find depressing is that 8.33% of 2018 is nearly gone, though we acknowledge the rejoicing of all who experienced the deep-freeze of the Great Polar Vortex of 2018—when brrrrrr turned to GRRRR!!!

If you’d like to celebrate another new year, the Chinese Lunar New Year is February 16 and we will be entering the year of the dog, a creature many of us will take pleasure in honoring! 

Legal technologies

Because many of our readers work in the legal industry, we lead with an overview of some legal technologies you should know in 2018, plus an interesting new legal services provider for entrepreneurs.

Four legal technologies plus one legal services company for start-ups 

CI strategy

Any good CI (competitive intelligence) expert knows all about KITS and KIQS. For those who view these acronyms as meaningless collections of letters that begin with K, this 5-minute read will enlighten you.

Leverage competitive intelligence with KITS and KIQSs 

Path to DAM success

Digital asset management or DAM is going mainstream. It’s an example of something that most of us don’t know, but need to know, especially those who create, utilize or organize and manage content in digital form. Phil Spiegel, our resident DAM expert, co-presented an informative webinar earlier this month and we share six key takeaways.

Film handling

Archiving and preservation professionals will enjoy this read by Danny Kuchuck at PRO-TEK, who shares his thoughts on a film-handling session he attended at AMIA 2017 in New Orleans. The role of dedicated film projectionist may be dead, but long live film projection.

2018 calendar

Just one of the topics covered by our research and law expert John DiGilio in his monthly collection of readings curated from around the web. Besides AI, other topics include PACER, information governance and the librarian’s role as information linchpin.

You’ve reached the end, and perhaps we’ve inspired some new topic thoughts and ideas—please take a moment to share and see you next month!
