Once again, I’m going to combine two things into one to try to get caught up. Since both Thing 8 and Thing 9 are individual productivity tools, I should be able to handle them both in one post without getting too long-winded.
Thing 8 is Google Calendar. I love this tool! I’ve had a Google account for a while for email, but only within the past 5 or so years have I really started to take advantage of the other tools that Google provides. I love how easy it is to share calendars and add others’ calendars to your own. I am an officer with my library school’s joint student and alumni organization, SLISConnect, and we use a Google calendar that we share to keep track of meeting and events, which is very convenient since we do most of our work virtually. I also have my calendar set up to sync with my iPhone calendar, so changes I make to one are updated on the other, and I love the option to send myself alerts to make sure I don’t forget something I may have put on my schedule weeks ago.
