Abstract
The speed at which technological change will take place has been overestimated, and the fundamental nature of that change, underestimated. The focus will switch from information products to information processes. Looks at how this will impact the information profession as they seek to orient users in information spaces that they did not build. In the electronic environment, information professionals will need to facilitate the entire research process, not just information discovery. Using lessons learnt from archives, explains how metadata strategies wil ne needed to organize the information space, and new approaches to training will be required to help the next generation of information professionals manage metadata structures. A question and answer session followed the lecture
