Proposed Session Title

Get this House in Order: personal workflows for productivity and collaboration

Description

Bookmarks, documents, notes, to-read lists, to-do lists, and more - it seems the more information we try to manage, the more we create to manage it. We are processing new information on a daily basis for professional development, personal interests, and communication. Our patrons and colleagues are also swimming in this sea of confusion. How do we keep ourselves afloat while helping others?

This workshop will compare several online tools for managing different kinds of information and include exercises to help map out our personal information workflows. We will take helpful tips from productivity methods such as Getting Things Done and the Pomodoro technique. Participants will leave with a personalized plan to implement and tools to choose from, such as Dropbox, Evernote, Diigo, Instapaper, and more.

Helpful to have on hand: 1) blank paper and pencil or pen; 2) laptop or tablet or smart phone.
