    If you’re interested in this webinar — then perhaps you, like me, are a master procrastinator. But you're not just any procrastinator. You care about doing good work. In fact, you want to do great work. You’re a hero because you care.

    The problem is, sometimes you feel like your tagline should read: “Inaction Hero”. Because, really, does this feel like your life? NOT. GETTING. THINGS. DONE. My life often feels like that, too. However, when you have procrastinated all your life, you learn a few things about being productive — even doing great work — when you’ve procrastinated yourself into a corner.

    So in this webinar, I’ll share the following:
    - tips for getting anxiety and overwhelm under control when you need to finish a project
    - strategies to help you stay resourceful and flexible when you need to solve a problem quickly, and
    - guidelines for optimizing your ability to be productive whenever you need to be, even if your natural mode seems to be “Inaction Hero”.

    Curious? Then sign up for this webinar! And don’t worry if you’re not procrastinating about it. I’m not really procrastinating about this webinar, either — at least by my standards. See you on April 11th!

    Application Programming Interfaces, or APIs for short, are everywhere. In fact, if you use a computer or smartphone, you likely use them multiple times a day. Understanding APIs has become crucial in the business world – specifically the information industry – as organizations look for simpler, quicker and more flexible ways to help their end-users access content.

     Join Brian Dufek from the ProQuest Dialog product management team (who just launched an API in 2015) for an educational presentation on APIs. This session will cover API basics, share several examples of how they work, and explain the info pro’s role in implementing APIs to enable seamless access to information.

    Join us for our periodic members-only webinar specifically for first-year members to ask questions about being an independent info pro. This time our guest panelists will be Keith Kirkpatrick of 4K Research & Consulting and Carol Compton of INDIECLEAR. While the focus is on questions that people in their first year of business have, everyone is welcome to attend. 

    The format is entirely question and answer. What have you always wanted to ask on AIIP-L but haven't? What would you like the panel to discuss – how to determine your target clients? how to select premium databases? how to set rates? do you really need a web site? Attend the webinar and you can ask your question live to the panel. You can also email questions to the host (djb@americanblackshoe.com) ahead of time, and she will pose them to the panelists.
