Budget cuts mean longer shifts at the reference desk or in circulation, so less time for composing library marketing materials, staff training, grant writing, or collaborative work. Google Apps is a free, powerful suite of programs that can make this type of work easier, more efficient, and less time consuming. From calendars to communication, Google’s web-based tools are ideal for collaborating across different schedules and locations or accessing documents from multiple computers. Google Apps can help librarians get more done in less time.
In this two-part workshop, library administrator and Google Apps expert Suzann Holland will show how to boost productivity for you and library staff by taking a few simple steps.
