Project Management in Practice in Libraries

As information professionals, our calendars are filled with scheduled meetings, routines, and ongoing workflows. We have to be flexible to make room for unplanned encounters and emergencies. We also frequently take on projects large and small, simple and complex.

Thoughtfully identifying the projects that come up in the course of our work allows us to define their parameters, intentionally bring to bear project management tools and best practices, and successfully deliver on the goals of our stakeholders.

In this webinar, Jacob Bastian, vice president of on-site services at Backstage, explores key concepts of project management and applies the discipline to a library setting. He also gives real-world examples, drawing on years of experience leading collection management projects in libraries.
