Librarians are often required to lead, coordinate, or participate in many different projects simultaneously, yet project management training is often overlooked in information science training programs. In this hands-on workshop, learn the basic theories and practical techniques of project management, which will help you work with vendors, understand end-users, and communicate more effectively with stakeholders throughout the project lifecycle. You'll come away with a fresh understanding of how projects should be defined, planned, and executed in real-life situations using simple and free tools.
Who should attend:
Anyone in the library and archives communities interested in developing project management as a skill, including students and new grads
