Workshop: Working with Indigenous peoples and priorities in Libraries
Teaching Studio (Room 709), Building 880
2pm to 5pm

There is increasing awareness in the library and archive sectors of the importance of working with Indigenous peoples and priorities in libraries. A key area for libraries to consider is the development of services that meet the needs of local Indigenous peoples and communities, as well as ways that promote and support Indigenous Australian culture.

This half-day workshop will focus on methods to engage and support Indigenous peoples and communities with their library and information needs. By establishing a foundation of knowledge to support and promote Indigenous Australian histories and culture, participants will be equipped to build library programs and collections that are responsive to Indigenous people’s diverse needs.
