Systematic Use of HIV/AIDS Information

Schedule of Information Activities

Staff Time

The activities involved in acquiring, using, and storing information require specific skills and can be very time consuming. Most organizations do not employ a librarian, or information specialist, to be responsible for these tasks. Instead responsibility for information management tends to be divided among various staff, or assumed by a de facto information manager.

Who is responsible for information management at your organization?


Because there is so much information, and because the need for it is constant, organizations benefit from controlling the resources spent in information management by clearly identifying the amount of time, and the activities to be spent on information acquisition, use, and storage.
