Using Online Management Systems to Collaboratively Manage and Organize Projects

Additional Speakers: 

Jennifer Peters, Rockhurst University, Content Management and Discovery Services Librarian


New technologies for facilitating project management are constantly emerging.  Not all of these options are within library budgets, but other options have little to no out of pocket cost.  With the goal of creating a one-stop, easily navigable project document repository and communications hub—without using funds from the library’s budget—librarians at Rockhurst began investigating online management systems.  This session will present a short overview of currently available project management systems and their uses, as well as a discussion of our decision making and planning processes, the implementation of an online management system, and observations following two semesters of use.
