Productivity for Academic Librarians and Researchers: Session 23 - Productive Meetings

Session 23 looks at meetings. I actually like the way meetings are done at my workplace - at least as far as my own role in them is concerned (the meetings that management have do not look like fun!). My biggest tip for an effective meeting is: have an agenda and know exactly what you are going to talk about. This way you don't get bogged down in unnecessary discussion.

For longer meetings, tea and biscuits/cake are also very good for morale!

Productivity for Academic Librarians and Researchers: Session 22 - Revisiting PLNs

Session 22 is about revisiting PLNs. I seem to have got rather behind on this, so I will keep this brief. I have really neglected Twitter of late so I will make an effort to get more involved once again. It was the main method by which I learned of and discussed interesting things, and I do miss it.
