6th - Producing Your Own Web Pages - An Introduction 
(www.aslib.com/training/5/01.html)
This course aims to provide you with the necessary skills to build a basic 
website. It covers the rationale, methods, and practicalities of providing 
web-based information. A significant part of the course is dedicated to 
practical work with basic elements of HTML, the main language of the web, 
and delegates will create their own individual web pages as an integral 
part of the course. Whilst delegates may attend either this or the advanced 
course independently, thorough knowledge of the topics covered in this day 
is a prerequisite to the undertaking of the advanced course.
Course Director: Andy Dawson

7th - Producing Your Own Web Pages - Advanced 
(www.aslib.com/training/5/02.html)
This course develops the skills imparted in the introductory course and 
aims to provide you with the necessary skills to produce a more complex and 
interactive website. It covers the use of more advanced elements of HTML as 
well as reviewing the roles of other languages and formats such as 
Javascript, PDF, XML, and the writing of XHTML-compliant pages. A 
significant part of the course is dedicated to continued practical work 
with advanced HTML elements, and delegates will create and/or develop their 
own individual web pages as an integral part of the course. Delegates will 
also have practical time to experiment with web-related tools and will 
learn how to "jazz-up" basic websites with clickable graphics and other 
effects. Whilst delegates may attend either day's training independently, 
thorough knowledge of the topics covered in the introductory course is a 
pre-requisite to the understanding of the advanced course.
Course Director: Andy Dawson

12th - Building and Deploying a Corporate Taxonomy 
 (www.aslib.com/training/4/06.html)
A Corporate Taxonomy is the backbone of an organization's information 
architecture. Whether the focus is on records management, document 
management or knowledge management, a Corporate Taxonomy is key to 
effective storage and retrieval. A Corporate Taxonomy is different from a 
subject taxonomy in that it is a taxonomy of business activities. Corporate 
Taxonomies are therefore specific to an organisation and have to be 
custom-built. This interactive workshop uses a blend of presentation, 
discussion and practical exercises to explain the purposes of a Corporate 
Taxonomy and to introduce delegates to technologies, techniques and tools 
for building and deploying them.
Workshop Director: Bob Bater

13th - The Ten-Step Marketing Toolkit (www.aslib.com/training/2/07.html)
This focused one-day course gives delegates practice in the core aspects of 
marketing their information services internally or externally. During the 
day attendees will work through 10 practical tools that will help them 
create value for their customers through applying effective marketing 
techniques such as needs identification, market segmentation, product 
planning and promotion. Delegates will have the opportunity to apply these 
techniques by working on a small marketing project related to their own 
work situation.
Course Director: David Skyrme

14th - METADATA: PRINCIPLES AND PRACTICE (www.aslib.com/training/4/21.html)
Metadata is one of the most important, but least understood, aspects of the 
modern information environment. This course demystifies the concept of 
metadata, and shows how and why it is used, in a variety of environments. A 
variety of commonly-used metadata formats will be demonstrated for example 
Dublin Core, and AACR/MARC - and the way in which metadata creation relates 
to the 'traditional' library/information tasks of indexing and cataloguing 
will be outlined.   Library/information workers are often called to create 
metadata records; they may also be asked to evaluate, choose or create 
metadata formats for their organisation's information. This course deals 
with both these topics, in principle and in practice.
Course Director: Dr David Bawden

15th -  An Introduction to Creative Commons Licences - a half-day course 
(www.aslib.com/training/4/25.html)
Creative Commons (CC) licences are a way to clarify the conditions of use 
of a work and avoid many of the problems current copyright laws pose. This 
half-day workshop is a basic introduction to Creative Commons and its 
implications for the information professional. Participants will look at 
the process of choosing a licence; then through discussion and group work 
will consider related issues and the role Creative Commons will play in the 
future.
Course Director: Marieke Guy

19th - APPRAISAL SKILLS (www.aslib.com/training/2/14.html)
The appraisal has managed to pick up the reputation of being something that 
is 'done to you once a year'! It has moved forward some considerable way 
from that, I hope, and become more than just a form filling exercise.  This 
workshop will introduce you to a structured approach but will also give you 
the tools to take back to the workplace and ensure that the annual 
appraisal session is part of a well oiled, motivational and developmental 
process. With tutor input, group discussion and practical exercises, you 
will feel more confident and positive about preparing, implementing and 
encouraging others in the benefits and uses of all year round performance 
management
Workshop Director: Nicola Wise

20th -  CLASSIFICATION PRACTICE (www.aslib.com/training/4/04.html)
If you have some experience of subject indexing, but need guidance or 
practice or want to refresh knowledge gained some time ago, this course 
will give you the skills needed. Participants are invited to bring typical 
material from their collections to form a group of items that can be 
considered in the practical sessions. Where an in-house scheme is used, it 
may be appropriate to bring a copy of the scheme to the course. Major 
themes throughout the course are your users, your collection and tailoring 
the approach to meet their needs. A pre-enrolment form is circulated prior 
to the course to ascertain the specialised indexing topics of interest to 
their participants. As far as possible the practical exercises will relate 
to these topics. This course is not aimed at complete beginners; they would 
benefit by taking Aslib's companion course Basic Cataloguing and Indexing 
<../4/02.html> prior to this course.
Course Director: James Shearer

21st - COACHING SKILLS (www.aslib.com/training/2/15.html )
We all have different needs and performance gaps, whatever the job we do. 
These 'gaps' can often be filled by training courses. Many courses though, 
are not specific enough for individuals and often have a 'scatter gun' 
approach which doesn't address those individuals' requirements. Coaching is 
the ideal solution to helping people perform to their potential. It is the 
perfect vehicle for both the individual and the coach in continuous 
development and relationship building in the workplace and beyond. This 
workshop will introduce you to a structured approach but will also give you 
the tools to take back to the workplace and ensure your success as an 
effective coach.
Workshop Director: Nicola Wise

26th - ABSTRACTING AND SUMMARISING (www.aslib.com/training/4/01.html)
Information overload affects everyone, and there is an urgent need for 
people who can extract the key facts and opinions from documents rapidly 
and reproduce them accurately. Abstracting and summarising techniques are 
essential for current awareness services, enquiry answering and desk 
research, preparing briefings and writing reports. This course reassures 
participants that abstracting is a learnable skill, which we all practise 
in our daily lives, and shows how we can use our ordinary reading and 
writing skills more efficiently to improve our abstracting technique.
Course Director: Tim Buckley Owen

27th - Economics for the Real World: Understanding Economic Data
(www.aslib.com/training/1/05.html)
This course addresses the key economic principles that underpin business 
and government, bypassing the highly abstract and unrealistic components of 
much conventional economics training. It clarifies the issues and 
interprets the jargon in order to make economic theory relevant to business 
activity. The course aims to equip attendees with a practical understanding 
of the ways in which economists try to describe and explain the workings of 
the economy, the significance of the many types of economic data and how 
changes in them should be interpreted.
Course Director: Chris Murphy

28th - DEVELOPING AN EFFECTIVE TEAM (www.aslib.com/training/2/03.html)
This course is aimed at those responsible for motivating and managing their 
library/information service team. It provides a practical overview of the 
management skills and techniques required to develop and maintain a 
productive and effective team. It will enable you to develop strategies for 
managing challenging situations and you will learn how to create a self 
motivating and self regulating team.
Course Director: Barbara Allan

29th - EFFECTIVE TECHNIQUES IN DESK RESEARCH 
(www.aslib.com/training/6/02.html)
This course is aimed at 1) professionals who are at the point in their 
career where they are adding longer term project work to their basic 
information retrieval duties and 2) managers/mentors helping such people. 
It details a step-by-step structure that can help manage the research 
process with a particular emphasis on reference interview techniques, data 
collection, methods of adding value and managing an effective feedback 
process. The focus is on practicality and the course is based on systems 
the lecturer has helped set up and run himself.
According to the particular needs of the group on the day, a number of 
pre-prepared units can be slotted in including, for instance, using the 
telephone as a research tool and managing a fee-charging service. The em  
phasis of the day is very much to encourage debate and best practice 
sharing amongst delegates who have the opportunity to discuss the 
challenges they face with fellow professionals.
Course Director: John Harrow

All our courses are available as onsite events.  Organisations that need to
