The library’s mission is to arm the knowledge worker.
Knowledge stewardship is like gardening. Healthy information, so it’s findable, actionable, and maintains high value throughout the info life cycle. Weeds will kill your plants. Old Sharepoint sites not being maintained.

Link checking, purging, pruning, re-tagging with appropriate metadata. Looked at copyright compliance. Updated training material, faqs.
Librarians provide service to other depts.
Took some time to sell this idea to management.
Design / build / steward.
