  • Developing ourselves: productivity for librarians

    by Jo Alcock

    Alcock wonders if it’s bad to be a twit and explores how you can use microblogging and social software to Get Things Done. This philosophy, articulated by David Allen in 2001, works on the principle that to progress toward our goals we must effectively manage incoming information. Alcock, a self-confessed productivity tool geek, shares her experiences with a variety of different tools and demonstrates how to integrate the best of these tools into the research librarian workflow.

    At 1:45pm to 2:30pm, Friday 28th October

  • Teaching Others & Developing ourselves: New Skills & Roles for the New Normal (Track C 204)

    To be effective, information professionals must keep up with their own professional development. New opportunities can be found in social media, virtual learning environments, embedded librarianship, and delivering mobile access. These new roles require multiple skills and adjusting to the new environment can be a challenge. The speakers in this session help you identify which skills to widen and develop to make the most of the new roles and opportunities that are available.

    At 2:45pm to 3:30pm, Friday 28th October
