Survival Guide for New Managers
with Rebecca Jones - AUDIO CONFERENCE COURSE

The move into management brings a host of new responsibilities, hopes, challenges and opportunities. Whether you are in a small library or a huge organization, the management skills and strategies are the same. This course focuses on those key areas that will determine your success as a new manager: planning, communicating, balancing and learning.

New Rules of Web Design
with Jeff Wisniewski- 1 hour AUDIO CONFERENCE
PART OF THE TECH TUESDAYS: TALKING WITH TECHIES SERIES

Your Web site's look and feel are critical factors in determining a users' overall experience. Is your design up to snuff? As the Web has evolved, the rules of the design game have changed. Some "forbidden" tools and techniques are okay to use, while other standard practices need to be reexamined. This session will explore how and why the rules have changed, and look at specific design tools, techniques, and practices with an eye towards revealing the good, the bad, and the ugly.

Intranet Tips for Information Professionals
with Mary Lee Kennedy - 1 hour AUDIO CONFERENCE
Part of the Strategic Conversations with Leaders Series

Rarely do information professionals hold positions responsible for driving the direction of an organization. These are the roles of functional leaders such as Marketing and Product Development, or CEOs, or heads of NGOs and government bodies. However, behind the scenes, and sometimes at the same table as CIOs, CKOs, or Executive Directors, information professionals play fundamental roles in ensuring the organization can accomplish its goals by leveraging the information and knowledge assets it needs to make the right decisions, learn, and create new knowledge. This session looks at how information professionals can enable the exchange of ideas, expertise and information within the Intranet. It presents the highlights of expertise from contributors to a forthcoming book from Information Today, Intranets: Realizing Their Full Potential. It provides practical, proven advice and know-how.

Friday, Nov. 16th, 1-2pm ET (10-11am, PT)
The Art of Appeal: Connecting Books and Readers
with Sharron Smith- 1 hour AUDIO CONFERENCE

It has been said that no two readers read the same book; the reasons why readers enjoy the books they do are unique to them. To successfully meet the needs of both leisure and student readers, it is essential that those who work with them have a thorough understanding of a book's appeal elements and how readers define a 'good book;. It is through this understanding that anyone who works with readers will then be able to assist those readers, especially students, to make the right reading choice for them, a choice that will contribute to reading satisfaction and success.
