Hosts: Fred Stutzman and the School of Information and Library Science, the SILS Doctoral Students Association, and the SILS Research and Doctoral Committee.

About: The purpose of this symposium is to bring together students and faculty to share tips and strategies for academic productivity. What is academic productivity? It refers to the strategies, hacks or tools you use to get your academic work done. Perhaps you’ve got a good strategy for keeping abreast of new literature, or maybe you’ve got a strategy for backing up your files that you’d like to share. Simple or complex, come out and share what works for you.

Format: This is a three hour event, drop-ins are welcome. Each hour there will be four 10-minute presentations, followed by 20 minutes of discussion/hands on. If you’d like to present, you must be willing to document your hack and share it electronically so others can use it. The talks will generally be “walk throughs” of your strategies. A wide range of subjects are encouraged, and presentations should be casual.
