If you'd like to talk with CARLI staff and your CARLI library colleagues about Alma Fulfillment and Automated Fulfillment Network workflows, known issues, and Q & A, join us online on Friday, December 3 from 2:00-3:30 central.

Sessions are scheduled for every other week, alternating between Tuesday mornings at 10:30am and Friday afternoons at 2pm.

CARLI Office Staff will be online to work with your questions and to facilitate the discussion.

This session will be recorded for CARLI staff use; since Fulfillment involves patron data, the CARLI office will evaluate if it is fitting and valuable to post segments of the session for later review.

To register: Select the Register tab at the top of this page.
Connection information will be sent to registrants the day before.

Additional sessions of "Let's talk about Fulfillment (I mean Alma, not life's purpose)" are scheduled/have occurred.

If you scroll through online self-help headlines or scan the titles of articles in major magazines, you’ve probably read something recently on the ONE thing you MUST do to become organized – and that ONE thing changes with each new writer’s perspective! Maybe you’ve even tried some of those techniques – but they not only left you unorganized, but feeling like you had failed.

Here’s a secret you really need to know - there really are no “ONE-size-fits-all” rules for becoming organized – isn’t that a relief?? In this information-packed webinar, you’ll learn about what you can do to be more organized, not what “they” say you should do!

We’ll look at your desk, your calendar, and your files. Which do you struggle with? How can you make sure your calendar is working for you and not against you? How can you make your filing system more efficient? Then we’ll spend some time with specific tips that will help you get started on your organizational journey. We will discuss techniques that will help you feel more in control, more organized, and more at peace with your surroundings – and isn’t that what we’re all looking for when we try to become more organized?

This session will include dozens of invaluable suggestions – you’re sure to find several that will help you in your organizational journey!

Linda Bruno has been developing and conducting training seminars for more than ten years. Certified with Development Dimensions International and Achieve Global, she also offers her own workshops on Customer Service, Supervisory Skills, Personalities, Organizational Skills, Effective Communication, Returning Balance to Your Life, and many other topics.
