Physician Heal Thyself
Do you ever think, “I am at the School of Information (SI) and an (aspiring) information professional, but I am . . .
- Drowning in email
- Flummoxed by Google calendar scheduling
- Paralyzed by the choices of reference management software
- Frustrated with document sharing or version control for group projects
- Forgetting all of my different passwords
- Et cetera, et cetera, et cetera?
Or, when you read the problems above, do you think, “I have just the solution!”?
How do you stay informed and organized at SI? What are your tricks or hack for time and information management? Share your solutions and/or find answers to your questions at Physician Heal Thyself. Here’s the idea:
- Check this Google spreadsheet for problems and solutions other have submitted
- Make three (3) slides that present your solutions to a common SI student information problem
- On February 17th, at noon, in NQ 1255, use three slides to tell the rest of us your awesome info-hack in 2-4 minutes.
Please join ALA officers and your colleagues in this fun, informal, and informative event!
