Course summary

Many of us working directly with e-resources in libraries would like to feel more confident in our understanding of the related technology.  Managing e-resources within the business and technology constraints has become the mainstay of information provision.  This course provides attendees with a balanced overview of the technical environment which is crucial if we are to do our jobs effectively.

Workshop summary

We all have to manage projects. Whether you are implementing a new system, migrating services, managing a vendor selection process, managing an office move or creating a new product or service, we are often managing projects without the support of a professionally trained project manager. We are expected to deliver more with less, and it mustn’t go wrong on our watch! If this sounds familiar, then help is at hand.
