*********************************************************************************************

Could your library benefit from formalized structures to encourage staff to exchange a variety of skills, tools, and practices with each other?

This workshop will focus on the building blocks of Knowledge Management: those practices that, when implemented in a library environment, contribute to valued efficiencies and decision-making. We will address the complex challenges around retaining institutional memory, training and learning, and human resources functions.

Through a series of real life scenarios, experiential exercises, and much discussion, participants will discover practices to facilitate collaboration, strategies to retain organizational memory and knowledge assets, and inexpensive, user-friendly tools to readily access documents and information and to know ‘who is doing what’?

Participants can expect to leave this workshop with a roadmap for their library administration to plan and implement Knowledge Management practices that are tailored to the organization’s identified needs, objectives, and culture.
