SEPTEMBER COURSES:
Please note: all our courses take place at Aslib in London.

Metadata: Principles and Practice, 18 September 2007
(http://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: Professor David Bawden
Course fee: 260 plus VAT (305.50) Aslib corporate members / 325 plus VAT
(381.88) Non members

Knowledge Architecture: AN Exploratory Workshop, 19 September 2007
(http://www.aslib.com/training/3/03.html) 
IA however, is evolving in some quarters into Knowledge Architecture (KA), a
compound discipline addressing all the sources of organizational 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.
Course Director: Bob Bater
Course fee: 280 plus VAT (329) Aslib corporate members / 350 plus VAT
(411.25) Non members

Running an Effective Information Service with Limited Resources, 20 September
2007
(http://www.aslib.com/training/4/12.html)
So you've been given an information service to manage. You have a room - perhaps
containing shelves of publications inherited from your predecessor. You have a
desk, with a networked computer and a phone, which is ringing.  Where do you
start?
Step-by-step, this one-day course will take you through the basics of setting up
and running an effective information service for your organisation.
Participative and practical throughout, it includes exercises and feedback, with
plenty of opportunity for discussion and ideas sharing.
Course Director: Tim Buckley Owen
Course fee: 230 plus VAT (270.25) Aslib corporate members / 287.50 plus VAT
(337.81) Non members

Cataloguing Practice, 26 September 2007
(http://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.
Course Director: James Shearer
Course fee: 260 plus VAT (305.50) Aslib corporate members / 325 plus VAT
(381.88) Non members

Economics for the Real World: Understanding Economic Data, 27 September 2007
(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
Course fee: 260 plus VAT (305.50) Aslib corporate members / 325 plus VAT
(381.88) Non members

Effective Desk Research, 28 September 2007
(http://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
emphasis 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
Course fee: 260 plus VAT (305.50) Aslib corporate members / 325 plus VAT
(381.88) Non members
