Sabine Brünger-Weilandt, FIZ Karlsruhe’s Managing Director and CEO, has issued a statement in advance of Online Information encouraging the information industry to address the topic of information quality in order to make the public more aware of the importance of high-quality, structured information services.
"In times when the internet suggests that any information can be made available by just a few mouse clicks, the quality of information and information skills should be discussed in public," her statement says.
Marydee Ojala will be interviewing Mrs. Brünger-Weilandt later this week. Until then, let us know what you think, by using the comment feature here.
