Projects, projects, projects! How do libraries manage, keep track of progress, and collaborate on projects? This talk provides a few different looks at current project management practices in a variety of libraries. Speakers focus on project management software options, and share some tips on selecting and implementing appropriate project management software to fit a library’s needs. They report on findings from a survey of libraries currently using project management software or other tools to track projects. Survey results show a snapshot of which platforms libraries are currently using, and what types of library projects are a good fit for project management software. Presenters share standards and best practices from the project management industry and frame their analysis using these principles.
