Are there times when you feel overwhelmed or unorganized? Do you wish for an easier way to tackle your to-do list and collaborate with your colleagues? This program introduces librarians to tools that will help them collaborate and communicate with others, complete tasks more efficiently, organize their notes and to-do lists, keep current with the library profession, and stay ahead of the game. Tools highlighted in this program include Microsoft OneNote, Feedly, Tweetdeck, Google Drive, Gmail features, and Workflowy. The program will demonstrate how to use each tool and share specific examples of how each tool can be best used to optimize performance and efficiency while working at an academic or public library.
