Do you find that you're doing more project work in your library? Do you have
trouble getting a project started? Do your small projects seem to grow into
large projects? Do you have difficulty meeting project deadlines? Do your
projects never seem to end?
These are all problems facing librarians today, as we are increasingly
expected to manage projects in addition to our everyday responsibilities.
The need for library staff to have project management skills so we can
deftly navigate the growing demands of our profession is the topic of an
article by Jane Kinkus in the July 2007 issue of College & Research
Libraries, "Project Management Skills: A Literature Review and Content
Analysis of Librarian Position Announcements." This workshop will provide an
introduction to project management concepts and show how you can apply them
to your library projects.
By the end of the workshop, participants will gain
* knowledge of the concepts of project management, including
initiating, planning, executing and closing a project.
* an understanding of how project management concepts can be applied
to library projects.
* the ability to develop a project plan.
