Idea Management for Librarians in a Digital World


Save your seats in this upcoming webinar where the speaker will be introducing the concept of building a second brain and learn how to filter your information effectively.

This webinar is for librarians who are interested in improving their use of technology for capturing, filtering, and applying information.


As a librarian, you now find yourself wearing many hats – knowledge manager, course developer, workshop facilitator, technology specialist – besides fulfilling your daily tasks. You require more knowledge and skills to curate and manage knowledge – and, in turn, share it with your patrons – and that can be a lot of information to process.

To handle this information overload, Lauren Valdez, co-founder at Forte Labs, will explore the concept of building a second brain – a method for personal knowledge management. She will also share about using digital tools to capture and curate information efficiently.

You’ll learn

  • Managing information overload in a digital era
  • How to capture diverse sources of information (documents, podcasts, screenshots, etc) into one digital system
  • How to turn reference material into creative output (writing, developing presentations, etc)

Please note that certificates will be issued to participants who attended the live session.
