Workshop Session C 6-8 PM: Help! And Where to Get it: A Library Survival Guide

Working in a library can be overwhelming, especially if you are working alone or split between multiple sites. Get organized and stop feeling like you spend every day performing triage or putting out the fire that is in front of you. Take advantage of the great brain of library professionals and build your Personal Learning Network. Unlock a treasure trove of lesson plans, best practices and procedures. Harness the power of the internet to build your own library survival guide using tools such as Symbaloo, Wikispaces, Livebinders, Twitter, Blogger, Pinterest and more.
