Upcoming Events – July / August

When T. S. Eliot penned the words, “April is the cruellest month”, he’d clearly never been to Canberra in August. Still, things are heating up in the local LIS scene with a number of events:

July 18 – Lunchtime presentation – Dr Michael Stephens

On Wednesday 18th of July, there will be a visit to the National Library by Dr Michael Stephens, who is visiting Australia as one of the Keynote Speakers for the upcoming APLIC conference later in July.

Dr Stephens is the Associate Professor at the School of Information at San Jose State University, and has written the monthly column “Office Hours” for Library Journal exploring issues, ideas and emerging trends in libraries and LIS education.  He has kindly agreed to visit the National Library and give a brief presentation on emerging trends and professional development in libraries.  Here is Michael’s latest blog post on coming to Australia.  This is an opportunity not to be missed!

Registration not required.

This event is presented by the ALIA URLS and ACTive Groups.
