Library and Information Science (LIS) has been practiced for centuries, and has aided in organization and classification of information, traditionally in physical form. LIS is alive and well today, and has evolved to manage digital information as well. When compared, the goals of LIS and data management are strikingly similar!

This session will present ideas from an independent research project for a MLIS degree which studied applying library and information science disciplines to the knowledge areas of DAMA-DMBOK. We will explore each of the sections of the DMBOK wheel, and learn how one or more LIS disciplines can influence and inform each DMBOK knowledge area. We’ll consider the question from the perspective of the user:

  • Can a comprehensive data architecture be thought of like a library?
  • What benefits are there for doing so?
  • What needs to be accomplished in data management to make this intentionally happen?
