SOCIAL TOOLS FOR BUSINESS USE:
Web 2.0 and the new participatory culture
London, 21-22 Feb 2007
The adoption of social software / Web 2.0 ideas by large organisations has 
begun, and it is going to be a game changing development. Many are 
leveraging the benefits of social software to address immediate business 
issues, rather than just for the novelty factor. This conference looks at 
the new technologies in a business environment, with overview presentations 
and case studies by expert practitioners    Further details of the 
conference can be found at: www.aslib.com/conferences.  Aslib corporate 
members receive a discount on the conference fee.

These are the training courses taking place in February at Aslib's Offices 
in London.  More details, including the fee, can be found by following the

Copyright for Information Providers: Advanced, THURSDAY 1
(http://www.aslib.com/training/4/26.html)
A basic understanding of copyright highlights just how complex an issue it 
is. Knowing how the law works is just the beginning but you need to be able 
to map basic concepts new and innovative information delivery systems and 
technologies. After this day's training you will have a grater 
understanding of how to interpret the law and how to put in place 
management systems that take account of the rapidly changing techniques 
used for information storage and
delivery. Copyright is an issue that will not go away and a working 
knowledge of it will be a valuable additional element in any CV or job.
Course Director: Graham Cornish

(http://www.aslib.com/training/2/02.html)
This programme will enable you to design effective training and coaching 
sessions. You will find out about the training cycle and this is used as a 
framework for the development of effective training in information and 
library services. You will briefly explore learning and individual

Course Director: Nicola Wise

DEVELOPING YOUR LEADERSHIP AND MANAGEMENT SKILLS, THURSDAY 8
(http://www.aslib.com/training/2/04.html)
The first few years of a new manager's working life involve developing a 
range of basic management skills and techniques, and developing confidence 
in putting them into practice. Experienced managers sometimes find that 
their management skills and techniques become static. In today's 
fast-changing environment it is essential that all managers continue to 
develop their knowledge and skills, and this workshop provides the 
opportunities for experienced managers to review their current management 
and leadership skills and identify ways of improving them. The workshop 
covers a range of topics and themes that are in demand by experienced 
managers. Delegates will have the opportunity to learn a range of 
management and leadership skills and techniques.
Course Director: Nicola Wise

INDEXING: PRINCIPLES AND PRACTICE, TUESDAY 13
(http://www.aslib.com/training/4/16.html)
Indexing is one of the best known of 'traditional' library/information 
activities. Its importance has not diminished in the digital age. On the 
contrary, indexing is of even more importance in digital environments, so 
that information can be efficiently found from sources such as the 
Internet, or intranets. Indexing is an important part of the broader 
process of metadata creation.
Many library/information workers are expected to index material, but not 
everyone is given sufficient training. This course covers general 
principles of indexing, and the indexing process, and also specific points 
of practice, in the indexing of all kinds of material, emphasising the 
value of controlled indexing languages. The relations between indexing and 
other ways of analysing and denoting content (abstracting, summarising, 
classifying, categorising etc.) are emphasised. The course also deals with 
understanding, and creating, indexing policies, which govern the way in 
which indexing is carried out.
Course Director: Dr David Bawden

KNOWLEDGE MANAGEMENT, WEDNESDAY 14
(http://www.aslib.com/training/3/01.html)
This seminar will give you an understanding of what knowledge management 
is, how it has emerged from several key strands of management thinking and 
a useful review of many of the initiatives that can and are being 
implemented. Perhaps most importantly it will encourage you to respond 
positively to the opportunity and the challenge represented by this 
subject. If the leading writers are correct about its significance for this 
century, can you afford not to?
Course Director: Nick Willard

KNOWLEDGE MAPPING?THE NEXT STEP, THURSDAY 15
(http://www.aslib.com/training/3/02.html)
Knowledge Mapping is emerging as one of the key elements of many Knowledge 
Management initiatives. Library and information professionals have an 
important part to play - and in some instances will be expected to take the 
lead role. This one-day seminar will clarify this complex subject and 
provide clear guidelines on how to proceed.
Course Directors: Graham Robertson and Bob Bater

NEGOTIATING ONLINE SUBSCRIPTIONS - AN AFTERNOON WORKSHOP, FRIDAY 16
(http://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.
Course Director: Fiona Durrant

PRESENTATION SKILLS, TUESDAY 20
(http://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.
Course Director: Nicola Wise

FINDING DIGITAL INFORMATION: SOURCES AND SEARCHING, WEDNESDAY 21
(http://www.aslib.com/training/6/05.html)
This course is designed for those who have to carry out searches - 
reference or research - of varied kinds, and who need an overview of the 
kinds of sources available, the kinds of systems which give access to them, 
and the most effective ways of finding the right information quickly.
The course covers different kinds of queries (reference and research, open 
and closed ..), and the way these are matched to sources and search 
techniques. It deals with varying kinds of resources: by level (primary, 
secondary?), by content (full-text, bibliographic, factual ?), and by 
environment (web pages, structured online databases ?). It compares the 
main search systems and interfaces (web search engines, metasearch engines, 
online databases ?), illustrates some effective search tactics, and shows 
how these can be combined into a strategic approach for finding the right 
information. Finally, it shows how novice searchers can gain expertise in 
the systems which are most useful to them, and how to keep up with new 
developments.
Course Director: Dr David Bawden

ECONOMICS FOR THE REAL WORLD: UNDERSTANDING ECONOMIC DATA, THURSDAY 22
(http://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

BRITISH COMPANY LAW, TUESDAY 27
(http://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.
Course Director: Chris Murphy

ABSTRACTING AND SUMMARISING, WEDNESDAY 28
(http://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. This course 
reassures participants that summarising - and the rapid reading that goes 
with it - are learnable skills, and shows how we can use our existing 
reading and writing skills more efficiently to improve our abstracting 
technique. Directed by Tim Buckley Owen, who has more than 20 years' 
experience in abstracting, report writing and journalism, the course 
includes practical exercises based on a range of different document types.
Course Director: Tim Buckley Owen

All our courses are available as onsite events.  Organisations that need to 
train 6 or more staff in the same subject will save on course fees by 
having the course onsite. Please contact me if you would like a quote.
