Webinar: eXtreme project management: change-driven project lifecycles

eXtreme project management: change-driven project lifecycles


For the September Lake Effects (9/18 at 1 CT), Gerald (Jay) Jurek will explore alternatives to traditional project management. Jay is a Librarian and Visiting Professor at the Library of the Health Sciences (LHS) at the University of Illinois at Chicago. He is currently charged with oversight of the major renovation at LHS, and a variety of service improvement programs at this library. Given his focus on the needs of library users and interest in organizational models that promote library innovation, Jay’s presentation is sure to provide a fresh and exciting perspective on an increasingly important area of library administration. Jay will discuss when and why libraries benefit from project management. He will explain three change-driven project life cycles which contrast with traditional project management. In an effort to engage the realistic concerns of the audience, Jay invites GMR members share examples of current or past projects by September 12. Jay will combine examples to better illustrate the strengths and weaknesses of each method. Please register at:

Collaborations can advance nursing care and improve patient outcomes. Nurses need easy access to specific resources to practice evidence based care and they require effective skills to use them.  Librarians provide the evidence-based resources and support training.  This session, presented by Amy Knehans will describe a successful partnership in introducing and promoting the Nursing Reference Center (NRC) at the Point of Care throughout the Department of Nursing via the shared governance Council structure. Participants will be encouraged to share how they are collaborating with nurses at their institutions to support evidence based practice and nursing research activities.

Amy  is the Clinical Outreach, Liaison, and Instruction Librarian, at the Harrell Health Sciences Library at Penn State Hershey.  Amy is liaison to Clinical Pharmacy, Dermatology, Medicine, Nursing and Physician Assistant Programs. She teaches about evidence-based information sources, coordinates the library’s departmental liaison program and oversees and implements clinical support services, and supports the needs of the clinical community.
