C204 - Collaborative Tool to Share Better & Learn More

3:15 p.m. - 4:00 p.m.
Ruth A Kneale, Systems Librarian, DKIST, National Solar Observatory

Atlassian JIRA is a collaborative issue and project tracking tool, allowing you to track any unit of work. This enables a surprising flexibility in task management. Heavily used in the software world, JIRA can also track things such as a remodeling project, sorting and reorganization of a collection, and student work efforts, and is a great tool for getting things done. This session shares how the presenter set up a JIRA instance and a simple webpage to take over a complicated and cumbersome in-person and email review process. The entire system was streamlined, maximizing information sharing while minimizing effort, and is now being adopted by partners outside the project.
