In case you missed our initial announcement last month, we’re doing a METRO workshop titled Getting Started in Project Management for Librarians. Join us on Tuesday, June 7th from 10am-1pm. Register at http://metro.org/events/743/.

Whether you’re organizing an event, renovating or rearranging a space, creating a program, or implementing a grant, you’re managing a project. Project management can help you manage projects more effectively and efficiently. Learn tools and techniques for successfully planning, organizing, and administering projects.
