 A one day seminar presented by CSU, ALIA and NLA

on Tuesday 18th November 2008, NLA Theatre

8:45 am – 5pm

This seminar, the third in a series organised by Charles Sturt University and supported by the National Library of Australia and ALIA, is intended to provide a broad overview of what the government focus on maximising the potential of Australia’s digital culture means for libraries and information agencies in strategy and in practice.

The morning will consider the big picture with two keynote speakers, Mia Garlick, the Assistant Secretary, Digital Economy, Department of Broadband, Communications & Digital Economy and Professor Trevor Barr of Swinburne University, a leading commentator on telecommunications issues and their impact on users.

The afternoon session will move the emphasis to libraries and the opportunities that this focus on the digital  world offers. Speakers include Derek Whitehead, president of ALIA and Director of Information Resources at Swinburne University and Christine Mackenzie of the Yarra Plenty Regional Library, recently awarded the fellowship of ALIA.

Full program and Registration now available.
