Solo Project Management: When You are the Whole Team
Tuesday, November 18, 2014
5 to 6 pm ET

The SLA Solo Librarians Division and the SLA New York Chapter have teamed up to present a webinar series with veteran library trainer Pat Wagner of SIERA (sieralearn.com).

The final webinar is now open for registration, please see the webinar 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.


Pat Wagner has been a trainer and consultant for libraries since 1978. She is a frequent speaker at national library conferences and SLA, AALL, and MLA chapter meetings around the US and Canada. She is known for her practical and good-humored programs.
