I spent most of this afternoon creating a high-level project plan. I wanted to identify potential milestones that I should be hitting if I'm to complete this project by the end of October. I used a Franklin Covey template that I'd received a few years ago when I took their Project Management Essentials course. I sent the plan to Nicole for her review to make sure I'm not forgetting any steps.
I also got to take a more in-depth tour of the digitization lab with Shannon Kupfer. Taking tours with Shannon is one of my favorite things to do. As a State Library employee, I always -always- enjoyed her tours of the rare books room. Her enthusiasm and excitement were (and still are) contagious. Shannon showed me how the large scanner works and pointed out the Microfiche scanner. Shannon offered to allow me to scan and add some metadata to some materials if I'd like some hands on practice. I just might take her up on that offer. She suggested an OBM annual report so that it would be a direct benefit to my agency, and I love that idea.
Finally, I did a quick Google search (ironically, without turning to the library's catalog) and found a few posts on using the AutoText feature in Microsoft Word. I think since there's a lot of overlap in the competencies being used at my agency (and throughout the state of Ohio enterprise - the number of competencies in the model is limited), this feature will come in handy. Here are the websites I found:
