Coupon cutting and free information sources

Who doesn't like free? At the furthest end of the spectrum, consider extreme couponers - a phenomenon documented by the media in the US and the UK. The amount of work and number of hours that individuals will put in to get free groceries is astonishing. What might be accomplished if this work ethic were channelled into, say, a day job?

Coupon cutting and free information sourcesBut consider the diets of these need-it-for-free mavens, dominated as they are by items that grocery retailers and manufacturers are pushing: new products or those that no one wanted to buy at full price. The lure of free is strong. However, the labour it requires to obtain and the quality of what one ultimately gets must also be considered.

In the information industry, there is much debate over the value of fee-based versus free content. In large part, "free" has traditionally been defined as "that which can be derived from a simple Google search and culled from the first page or two of results". Here, information sources are not necessarily vetted, as the primary motivators are to find it fast and for free.

However, we're witnessing an interesting evolution of free when it comes to content. Perhaps the simple fact that so many consumers were willing to use good-enough content that they could locate quickly has driven more premium (read: quality) information providers to add free offerings to their menu. This freemium model - in which a content producer offers free content to develop customer relationships through which fee-based products and services can eventually be sold - is one that we see everywhere today.

There are others getting in on the free information action, though. At the recent Information Industry Summit, FreePint's Director of Research Robin Neidorf facilitated a revealing set of discussions with the theme Buyer-Seller-User: The True Lens for Evaluating ROI. One breakout group focused specifically on which free sources end users rely on (sometimes ignoring the premium sources their information managers have licensed for their use). At the start of the discussion, "Google search" was used as a synonym for "free web sources".

An attendee quickly pointed out that, in his experience, this is no longer accurate. For example, he says he uses LinkedIn as a free web source to find experts, talent, ideas, announcements on companies and competitive intelligence. In fact, these days, his social sphere gets much more of his mindshare for free web searching than does Google, and he uses that social sphere as a researcher - selecting the right source for the information he needs. This was reinforced by a recent custom research product undertaken by FreePint Research. When asked which social environments they rely on for business information and sources, almost 83% of respondents cited LinkedIn Groups, while Facebook trailed a distant second at 31.4%, followed by Google+ at 25.7% and Twitter at about 23%.

Certainly, neither of these examples is proof-positive that the open web search has been surpassed by social networks or other go-to freemium sources. However they suggest that information consumers are becoming increasingly savvy and selective about how they leverage their social networks and trusted brands as ways to locate information sources.

Without a doubt, social filters have increasing value for content discovery. However one can also see an emphasis on the increasingly deep well of free content provided through these networks, targeted interest groups and, yes, from trusted information providers.

Here at FreePint - as the name suggests - we know the value of free. Sharing information of value with our community helps reinforce our ties to it. We want you to turn to us for free content of a quality you can count on: We invite you to register to join us in an upcoming webinar or to view our archive. We also want to help you maximise your use of social tools as information sources with our new FreePint Report: Buyer's Guide for Social Media Monitoring.

 My Favourite Tipples

Dr Hazel Hall By Dr Hazel Hall

It's two years since I last listed My Favourite Tipples and it is a pleasure to list a few more. I should say that the tipples that I listed last time around are still very much part of my everyday life. The following have all become more important to me in the past two years.

  • About me: There's information about me on numerous sites and services across the Internet. What I like about About.me is that the service provides a simple format for pulling all links directly relevant to me together in the same place. I find it so useful that I now use it instead of my University home page URL in my sig file. If you check http://about.me/hazelh, you'll find a simple set of links to Hazel Hall on the major services such as Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, Google+, Google Scholar, SlideShare, Topsy and Vimeo, as well as those to my online presence on the Edinburgh Napier University pages and those of the Library and Information Science Research Coalition. If you are somebody who is frequently asked to provide profile information, for example to conference organisers or to publishers, it's nice to be able to point them to your About.me page.

  • DREaM online community: We launched the Developing Research Excellence and Methods project, which is funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council and supported by the Library and Information Science Research Coalition, in January 2011. The project aims to develop a network of library and information science researchers by bringing them together at five events over the 18-month duration of the project. This tipple is the online community for the project. Anyone with an interest in LIS research is welcome to join, whether or not they are able to attend the DREaM project events. I spend quite a lot of time in the online community, especially around the time of the DREaM workshops and conferences. The most recent was a workshop held at the British Library on 30th January. Here we announced that Dr Ben Goldacre will be the closing keynote speaker at the DREaM conference on 9th July 2012. Anyone who would like to pre-register to hear Ben and the other speakers is invited to contact me (view the main DREaM project webpages)

  • Institute for Informatics and Digital Innovation: This is the home page of the research institute to which my own research centre - the Centre for Social Informatics - belongs. This is a great resource for keeping up to date with developments across the full range of research and commercial activities related to computing and informatics undertaken at Edinburgh Napier University.

  • Blipfoto: I've known about Blipfoto for some time, largely because an Edinburgh-based company is behind the site, but it is only recently that I have joined the blipping community. The concept is very simple: each member has their own photo journal and the idea is that you tell your story, one day at a time, one photo at a time. Some members are fantastic photographers. Some (like me) are not. Since joining up I have become much more aware of the world around me. I'm paying attention to the light on days when I intend to take my photo of the day outside, and always keeping an eye out for interesting things to photograph. My Blipfoto activity also reminds me (as if I need to be reminded) that I spend far too much time at my desk!

  • Dreamaticus: Like Blipfoto, my last tipple is also a blog. Most days at least one of the two authors, and often both, blog their latest dreams. If your sense of humour is anything like mine, it's possible that you'll find the Dreamaticus entries as funny as I do.

Professor Hazel Hall is Director of the Centre for Social Informatics within the Institute for Informatics and Digital Innovation at Edinburgh Napier University, UK. She is currently seconded two days per week to lead the implementation of the UK's Library and Information Science Research Coalition. Contact Hazel at h.hall@napier.ac.uk.

  • [DocuTopic] U.S. Presidential Elections 2012: Key Websites

    In the United States, the quadrennial presidential elections consume the news media's attention starting at least a year prior to the vote. Our national election day is on the sixth of November, and it seems as if the media buzz has already been going on for a year. For those of us who don't have jobs requiring daily awareness of U.S. election news, I'd like to point you to a few free online services that can provide help when needed.

  • [FUMSI] Report on Professional Development

    The continuing professional development of the library and information professional has many facets to it. In years gone by, the conference, either attending or presenting, was seen as a solution for ticking some of those professional development boxes.

    Trends for conferences seem to be changing. The big ticket conferences seem to be falling out of favour, in part because of concerns around budgets and identifying benefits. The rise of the unconference model coupled with social media has also created a shift in what we as professionals find really useful in helping us do our jobs and being more creative and innovative people.

James MullanBy James Mullan
FUMSI: Manage

If you're anything like me, you're likely to have lots of things you do outside of work that you're passionate about and you really enjoy doing. But what about whilst you're at work? It is good to consider what it is that you enjoy doing so much that you will evangelise. For me, it has to be managing an intranet.

VIP issue 98VIP Magazine: Adding value to information services

By Joan Morris

I believe that the negative effects of not having good, actionable data are far reaching for a company when it does not have access to accurate, competent data. Actionable content means different things to different users. Regardless, however, companies need monitoring products or services, as well as collaboration and customisation.

Before the introduction of alerting and monitoring products we were not able to react fast enough, or be as informed. An individual or company had to troll the halls of government or send staff to conferences and wait to have the information translated or turned over to the reading room.

We have come a long way since then.

However, information overload is something we struggle with every day. How can we keep up with all the new government regulations? How can we get up to speed in a very short period of time on all these changes? We need to be smart about everything, and be able to speak intelligently about a multitude of topics.

One thing librarians and researchers in other industries would like to do is to be able to use methods such as single search within their workflow. Another is to have experts filter relevant information. The products reviewed in this issue both demonstrate how information tools are working to meet this demand.

NovaRes is a unique product for the financial services industry. This global regulatory and monitoring service has found a targeted niche to fill. With information overload, and the need to filter and monitor regulatory information, this type of product has become increasingly important.

SciVerse is an excellent first effort to begin the process of bridging the gap between the information professional and the information vendor, because it fosters collaboration in a way not seen or experienced by both before. With SciVerse search options, users are given many choices to customise their experience. Researchers and librarians can use these applications to work with developers to customise their own look and feel.

Essentially, these information publishers are saying let's work together so that we can give you the tools that operate on a principal of seamless workflow.

Researchers and librarians must justify every product in their information centre. Polling end users is a strong part of the renewal process. Information publishers try to remove duplication and shorten training time but still have to learn several obtuse search languages, in which the results suffer and the concerns, such as "Did I find everything? Was there another way to find a complete list? If so, can we do this for all industries?" still remain tantamount. Faster is always the way researchers want to go, while not losing accuracy.

Building other applications with your developers so that you can move information across variable platforms is a wonderful idea. This makes it easier to share and leverage your content and the information you are purchasing. Company budgets are shrinking to purchase information, yet accountability remains high.

I think all users can agree the coverage, the add-ons, the monitoring and real-time features are indeed useful, relevant - and timely. They help deliver the kind of value that organisations can quantify to help justify information resources.

  • Giving a fig for negative research?

    In December 2011 I was reporting from #Online11 where publishers are looking at different ways to add levels of granularity to peer content. Hurrah - but the problem remains in the current publishing model that negative data is very rarely published.

  • Resources for small businesses: 1

    In previous posts, I've talked a little bit about the information management needs of small businesses. In this post I'd like to cover their information resource needs. Having worked for a number of small businesses in various information guises and having spent the last eight years working for business support organisations, I've used a number of resources aimed primarily at smaller businesses. The ones covered here have worked particularly well; although many of these are UK focused there will be similar products available for other countries.
