In the second post of this series, we are focusing on how the RIAMS Editorial team keep all the content up to date in RIAMS Libraries.
The most important part of the Editorial team is our authors. All our authors have the technical and practical knowledge to back up the topics they write for; they are commissioned to keep the existing content up to date and to create new content. This work is administered by the RIAMS Chief Editor and the NI Editor.
Each document in Libraries, except for local content, is checked each year. Any changes to the documents are then carried through to Libraries so all subscribers can benefit from these changes.
Using Libraries, for many organisations, has freed up their officers time to focus on enforcement, ensuring everyone has access to the same documents, leading to greater consistency across teams and departments, especially if on multiple sites.
If there are any legislative changes before a document reaches its review date, the document will be reviewed early and those changes carried across to the online version as quickly as possible. This ensures you always have access to the most recent and correct version.
The only content we don’t check is the content uploaded by our subscribers.
If there are any features in addition to those above you’d like us to highlight, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us on firstname.lastname@example.org or call 01239 711793.
