Katharine Schopflin

She has worked in in a variety of settings, including media, government and non-profit, in roles ranging from research, web content management and knowledge management to cataloging and archive management.

"The contributing authors, who have spent years in the trenches as corporate information professionals, bring their individual and specialized points of view to provide the reader with easily relatable guidance and practical advice … Each chapter is well written, informative, and practical, which is to be expected from a handbook, making it an appropriate addition to any corporate library. Chapters from this publication are relatively brief, making them easy to digest and likely to find their way onto syllabi in any number of information science courses, and they include good prompts for classroom discussion."
