These are the events happening later this month at Aslib in London:

8th - Knowledge Architecture (NEW COURSE)  
(www.aslib.com/training/3/03.html)
IA is evolving in some quarters into Knowledge Architecture (KA), a compound 
discipline addressing all the sources of organisational competence - 
explicit and tacit - within a single, holistic framework. In order to add 
the missing tacit dimension, an additional set of tools and techniques needs 
to be included in the Knowledge Architect's toolkit. This interactive 
workshop blends presentation, discussion and practical exercises to consider 
the evolutionary stages involved in the transition from IA to KA and to 
examine the most important tools and techniques involved. It presents a 
number of case studies and invites delegates to discuss the implications for 
information professionals, information managers, information architects, 
knowledge managers and knowledge workers alike.


14th - Business Information - 2 places remaining  
(www.aslib.com/training/1/03.html)
Effective performance in meeting business information needs requires an 
understanding of the key concepts, jargon and institutions relating to this 
type of information and an awareness of the principal sources through which 
it can be retrieved. This course meets both needs and is directed at 
information professionals who have either not previously dealt with 
information in the business field or only limited experience of handling it.


17th - Developing an Information Strategy (www.aslib.com/training/4/09.html)
Information systems are of ever-increasing importance to all types of 
organisation, yet their introduction and development is often poorly 
controlled. This course endeavours to consider ways in which an information 
strategy can be developed to help ensure information systems meet current 
and future organisation needs


20th - 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


21st - Basic Cataloguing and Indexing  (www.aslib.com/training/4/02.html)
This course is aimed at people who need to organise a collection of 
information but who have little or no knowledge or experience of how to do 
it. The collection may include books, periodicals, photographs, videos, 
computer discs, Internet page references and other material. The course will 
show beginners how to create and maintain control over this material so that 
required items and information can be retrieved. The emphasis is on 
practical cataloguing and participants are invited to bring typical material 
from their collections to form a group of items that can be considered in 
the practical sessions. The final section of the course considers how 
computers can assist in cataloguing and indexing, with practical 
demonstrations. However, no prior computer experience is needed for this.



22nd - British Official Publications - 3 places remaining 
(www.aslib.com/training/1/02.html)
This course is aimed at those whose organisation needs to keep abreast of 
current developments in parliament and government.  This course will help 
you answer such questions as: What exactly is a white paper? How is draft 
legislation examined and passed into law? What are statutory instruments and 
how are they examined? What is the difference between parliament and 
government?


23rd - Statistics for Business (www.aslib.com/training/1/11.html)
Statistical data is a vital aid to decision making in business. Statistics 
are important to provide information on existing and potential markets, 
measure industry performance and indicate social and economic trends. This 
course is intended for those who want to gain a better understanding of 
statistical data, key concepts and available sources. It will be of interest 
to all information professionals whose work involves the use of statistics.



27th - Negotiating Online Subscriptions - afternoon workshop 
(www.aslib.com/training/2/08.html)
It is tough out there at the moment. We all need to make an impression on 
our employers and one way we can achieve this is to save money. It is often 
awkward talking about money and this session gives practical guidance on how 
to broach the subject with the publisher. This session is aimed at anyone 
who has to deal with online resource renewals, new subscriptions or 
cancellations. The workshop provides practical tips and strategies you can 
really use. Delegates will be able to learn from the experience of the 
presenter as well as have the opportunity to discuss their own experiences.



28th - British Company Law (www.aslib.com/training/1/01.html)
'Very important, but far too difficult for non-specialists' is how company 
law is typically viewed. This course distils the key legal principles which 
govern corporate activity for those who lack the time to follow lengthy 
conventional legal courses. It also goes beyond setting out the formal 
legislative framework to examine how these rules are applied in practice in 
British companies, featuring copious real life examples and looking at 
actual company documents. The course also identifies sources for researching 
companies and their directors.



29th - 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



30th - 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.


31st - Cataloguing Practice (www.aslib.com/training/4/03.html)
If you have experience of cataloguing or database compilation but need 
guidance or practice using AACR2 and MARC (including MARC21), or want to 
refresh knowledge gained some time ago, this course will give you the skills 
needed, including some practice in using online public access catalogues 
(OPACs) and thinking about their design criteria. Participants are invited 
to bring typical material from their collections to form a group of items 
that can be considered in the practical sessions. This course is not aimed 
at complete beginners;
