Research Support Community Day
Monday 13 February 2017, 9:00am - 5:00pm
Colombo Theatre A, Colombo Building, University of New South Wales
Once again Research Support Community Day will be held in conjunction with the ALIA Information Online Conference.
The program will include presentations from a variety of speakers including researchers, librarians and e-research specialists. There will be opportunities to network with other librarians and to hear what other Australian research and academic libraries are doing in the research support space.
The day is aimed at library staff with an interest in research support and services. You don’t have to be working in the area or have experience in delivering services to researchers; we encourage a wide range of perspectives and welcome all, including those new to academic libraries. Sessions will be facilitated by research librarians who actively develop and deliver research services, and there will be plenty of time for discussion.
The 2017 event is being hosted by University of New South Wales Library.
This is a free event. To register and view the program, please go to : http://rscday.info/.
