Aslib Training has  added a few new courses to the 2006 schedule, the

These are the events taking place in May:
10th - Enquiry Handling
16th - Metadata: Principles and Practice
17th - Evaluating Digital Information
23rd - Presentation Skills
24th - Records Management: An Introduction
25th - Records Survey - a half day workshop

More information on these courses appears below:

10 - ENQUIRY HANDLING (www.aslib.com/training/4/11.html)
Illustrated throughout with sample enquiries and the pitfalls they present, 
this course introduces participants to the full range of basic enquiry 
answering techniques. Each session includes an introductory explanation, 
group exercise, feedback and discussion, and delegates are encouraged to 
contribute their own ideas and experience in a friendly and informal 
atmosphere. Presented by the author of the best-selling Facet Publishing 
book Success at the Enquiry Desk, this course concentrates on 
practicalities rather than sources, but also includes suggestions for 25 
multi-purpose reference sources you can't afford to ignore.

On completing the course, you will be able to:
- understand fully what the enquiry wants
- get started on any enquiry without your mind going blank
- select and reject possible reference sources with confidence
- search indexes and databases efficiently
- know what to do if you can't find the answer
- meet deadlines every time
Course Director: Tim Buckley Owen

16 - 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.

On completing the course, you will be able to:
- understand what metadata is, how it is used, and why it is important
- be familiar with several widely used metadata formats
- understand the relation between metadata, indexing and cataloguing
- be able to create metadata records
- be able to evaluate and choose appropriate metadata formats
Course Director: Dr David Bawden

17 - EVALUATING DIGITAL INFORMATION (www.aslib.com/training/4/13.html)
The ability to acquire external information appropriate to your 
organisation's needs is a skill that no enterprise can afford to be 
without. The competitiveness of business and the fast pace of change have 
increased the need for rapid access to high quality information. The ease 
of access to the Internet and the exponential growth of information 
available have increased the amount of choice. If you are involved with the 
purchase of information products, this course is essential.

On completing the course, you will be able to:
- feel more confident with your purchasing decisions
- select information products relevant to business needs
- evaluate comparable information sources
- compare & evaluate vendors
- define licensing requirements to suit your organisation
Course Director: Olivia Freeman

23 - PRESENTATION SKILLS (www.aslib.com/training/2/09.html)
This intensive course will help you to make memorable and effective 
presentations. It is a very practical workshop and you will gain the 
opportunity to develop your presentation techniques in a non-threatening 
atmosphere.

On completing this course, you will be able to:
- prepare an effective presentation using a range of techniques
- make an interesting and memorable presentation
- select and produce aids and resources to support your presentation
- use a range of presentation skills and techniques to enhance your 
performance
Course Director: Barbara Allan

24 - RECORDS MANAGEMENT: AN INTRODUCTION (www.aslib.com/training/4/19.html)
This one-day course is a basic introduction to the principles and practices 
of records management. It is designed for librarians and information 
managers who have become involved in document and records management for 
the first time and wish to gain a grounding in the relevant concepts and 
techniques, building on and adapting their existing skills as information 
professionals.

On completing this course, you will:
- understand the objectives of records management
- understand the key principles of records management
- be able to recognise opportunities for improvement within the organisa  
tion
Course Director: Shelley Hardcastle

25 - RECORDS SURVEY (www.aslib.com/training/4/23.html)
This half-day course links with the one-day course "Introduction to Records 
Management". It is designed to give delegates an understanding of a key 
records management tool - the records survey. Records surveys enable 
information specialists to inventory records so that they can identify 
issues within their organisation and gather data to plan for resolution. 
The course is particularly relevant if you are planning to meet Freedom of 
Information requirements.

On completing this course, you will:
= understand the objectives of a records survey
- understand the methods of surveying
- have practised carrying our a records survey
Course Director: Shelley Hardcastle

All our courses are available as onsite events.  Organisations that train 6 
or more staff will save on course fees by having the course onsite. Please
