The “Soft Skills” for Academic Library Web Project Managers: ASIST&T 2009 Preconference

Dear Colleagues,

Do you manage web-related projects at your institution? Are you interested in doing so? If you’ve managed a web project before, you know that the “soft skills” are actually quite hard. This all-day ASIS&T preconference workshop is focused on communication, teamwork, and usability for web managers, programmers, technical staff and anyone who may be called upon to manage a web project within the library environment. Jody Condit Fagan and Jennifer A. Keach offer practical guidance based on managing web projects within academic libraries of all sizes. Their book, Web Project Management for Academic Libraries, will be published by Chandos Press in October 2009.

The preconference is Friday, Nov. 6, 2009, 9:00am – 5:00pm, in Vancouver, BC, at the ASIS&T Annual Meeting.  Full details can be found on our preconference homepage:
