Event Details

Much of the program for 2011 Reference @ the Metcalfe Seminar explores the role of data in libraries. With library collections and services moving away from just the physical and expanding rapidly into digital resources, this year's speakers will explore the library's role in creating, collecting and sharing digital data.

Creating and sharing digital resources will become increasingly important to libraries that want to remain service based, surely a key feature of reference work, and not be relegated to just physical store houses. This year's program promises to stimulate your thinking about what that could mean for public libraries.

This seminar is free for New South Wales public library staff.

The seminar features:

You will also be hearing from Ross Balharrie and Jerelyn Brown about databases and licensing,

Megan Pitt on  Central Northern Regional Library's CWA Country of study web page and others.


You can even buy a t-shirt to celebrate this seminar.
