There are lots of books, websites etc. on how to "organize" your office or home office etc. Does anyone know of a book or website that offers information more specific to an IT office? IT offices have different challenges in regards to physical organization, so much product packaging, manuals, software disks, cables, old equipment, dead equipment that you may need parts of later, all sorts of odds and ends. What are the best ways to catalog stuff, file stuff, pile stuff, document stuff etc etc.
I just started working part time in my office in the IT area, and I'm the only IT person "onsite", someone else runs most of the network stuff, but does it as a side job - dropping in when necessary. I will now be more of the physical presence of IT in the building. So I've inherited a bit of a mess, since the Network IT person just comes in, does what he needs to and hasn't spent much time organizing anything. I'm drowning in software disks, manuals and piles of old floppy disks!
