Essential Skills seminar:
Managing yourself: the biggest challenge of all - how to be productive with your time
Wednesday 28th March 2012
6.00 for 6.30-8.30pm
Maughan Library, Chancery Lane, King’s College London (Weston Room)
As librarians and information workers, we are experts at managing and organising collections. But what about our own information? How do we manage incoming information such as emails, blog posts, paperwork etc.? How do we prioritise what tasks we should be doing? How do we break down projects into more manageable tasks and track our progress? This session will introduce you to the basics of David Allen's Getting Things Done principles and consider how you can apply this in your own work. It will include active discussion and practical examples of some of the tools you can use to help you Get Things Done.
The session will be facilitated by Jo Alcock who is a research librarian at Evidence Base, Birmingham City University. In her role she is involved in a number of different projects providing research, evaluation and consultancy for the LIS sector. Jo's current professional interests are utilising technologies for libraries and librarians, marketing communications, and driving change in professional organisations. She has spoken on this topic before at events such as Internet Librarian International and has embedded the Getting Things Done methodology into her work.
There will be opportunities to network and mingle over nibbles and drinks
