Information governance, ensuring compliance with copyright, data protection and privacy legislation - among other issues - is an important area for organizations in the knowledge economy. Yet, although areas of concern around environmental governance and IT governance have been addressed, little has been heard about the governance of information until very recently. The UK Health Service has had information governance issues forced upon it through issues relating to electronic patient records but, as information exchange between organizations, between organizations and their stakeholders and between individuals within organizations becomes standard practice, so excellent information governance becomes vital. This book will explore what we mean by information governance, look at the issues it covers, and offers suggestions for ensuring that it becomes embedded into the thinking of top management and of all stakeholders in public and private sector. With a foreword by Janice Lachance, Executive Director of the Special Libraries Association, and contributions from a broad range of practitioners, the book is divided into four parts: Part 1 - The context: from corporate governance to information governance includes 'What is information governance'? Part 2 - Legal Issues: meeting the letter and the spirit of the law - the risks; Part 3 - Developing good practice: case studies; and Part 4 - Information governance as a core competence. This book will make essential reading for all senior and middle managers in the information profession.
