AALL’s Continuing Professional Education Committee presents the AALL2go pick of the month: Working Smart: Innovative Ways to Do More with Your Day.
Often, whether in a law school or law firm setting, the challenge is finding enough time to get everything done. In particular, as summer’s leisurely stroll winds down and fall accelerates into full sprint mode, you may wish you had more time in your day.
This program offers you techniques and technologies to facilitate greater daily work efficiency and effectiveness. The speaker, a law firm librarian, gives examples of how you can do things in less time. You’ll find suggestions, for instance, on how to make your software work for you, how to get the most out of your Outlook email and calendar settings, how to use text entry shortcuts, and how to get a handle on organizing folders and files.
Click on the Google Sites link to locate helpful materials including the program handout and a selective resource bibliography to RSS feeds/blogs, web monitoring sources, methods of organizing computer folders and files and setting up side-by-side applications, and how-to screencasts on adding items to your PC Start menu, saving an email to your Outlook Calendar, and setting up an Outlook Rule to isolate email from others in your institution. Take time for this quick 30-minute program and you’ll be “working smarter” in short order!
