Google, Bing, and Yahoo, are three of the most popular search engines used. Regardless of which one you prefer, chances are there will be information that cannot be found in these traditional sources. 

In this workshop, we will focus on the other search options available to us, such as Subject Directories, Social Media, and Alternate search engines, and how they differ from the popular engines used.  We will discuss the pros and cons of using these alternate resources and when to use them.

Could your library benefit from formalized structures to encourage staff to exchange a variety of skills, tools, and practices with each other?

This workshop will focus on the building blocks of Knowledge Management: those practices that, when implemented in a library environment, contribute to valued efficiencies and decision-making. We will address the complex challenges around retaining institutional memory, training and learning, and human resources functions.

Through a series of real life scenarios, experiential exercises, and much discussion, participants will discover practices to facilitate collaboration, strategies to retain organizational memory and knowledge assets, and inexpensive, user-friendly tools to readily access documents and information and to know ‘who is doing what’?

Participants can expect to leave this workshop with a roadmap for their library administration to plan and implement Knowledge Management practices that are tailored to the organization’s identified needs, objectives, and culture.
