My Current Work Activities
I am currently running an Information Resource Centre at Petronet. My main activities are as follows:
Ordering library materials
Information retrieval using the Internet (mainly for Legislation)
Extracting of articles from magazine and newspapers
Designing a web page for the library
I am also in charge of a database that I created using Microsoft Access. It is a Document Change Control Database, the company uses it to document all the changes within the company, that is changes to policies, standards, drawings, designs, assets, etc.
At the moment I am busy working on the motivation for a new library system. Having evaluated various library management systems, I selected InMagic DBText for Libraries.
I chose it because of its flexibility in relation to the environment that I am working in.
Information Retrieval/Information Management Project
My project involves designing a web page. This page will have the following:
Links to all tertiary institutions in South Africa
Links to bursary offices
Links to on-line chat
Links to free e-mail hosts
Links to on-line registration to certain tertiary institutions
A database on all tertiary institutions will also be constructed.
