The final webinar in the SLA NY/Solo Librarians Division Webinar Series is now open for registration, please see the event details and registration URL below.

Program Description
Most project management models assume you have co-workers and employees to share the work. But if you are working alone, normal strategies like delegation become problematic. How do you negotiate with bosses and customers, juggle obligations, and modify the time-space continuum (or clone yourself)?


  • The Key Idea: Evaluate Your Resources, Ask For What You Want
  • Do You Say Yes To Everyone?
  • Even Solo Librarians Need A Written Plan
  • Negotiating With Internal And External Customers
  • Good Intentions (Late Hours) Hide Information About Resources
  • Case Studies
  • Evaluate accurately what can be done with the resources you have.
  • Better communicate limits to bosses and customers.
  • Sort priorities and improve focus.
