Flying North for the Winter

I know that we're ALIA Sydney, however we do venture a little further afield from time to time and this for one week this May even we are admitting Brisbane is the place to be. 

On the 10th of May: QUT is hosting RAILS: The 7th Research Appications in Library and Information Studies seminar  that brings together educators, researchers and practitioners within the information professions to enable a culture of informed and innovative research practice.

Then from the 12-13th of May: University of Southern Queensland is playing host to the 3rd International M-Libraries Conference: which is about everything mobile in libraries. The three topic strands will focus on mobile services and their development, mobile users and evidence about their behaviour and requirements and emerging technical developments including new platforms, devices and applications and features more than 40 presentations and posters from 20 different countries from Australia, Europe, Asia, Africa and North America. 

We're excited about what the programs have to offer and since we will be venturing out there, we're going to report back let you know what we think. Katrina McAlpine will report back from RAILS and I will bring you the inside info on M-Libraries. So stay tuned.
