Libraries Australia Forum

I spent the day at the Libraries Australia Forum at the National Wine Centre today with about 160 librarians from around the country.  Great venue & wonderful event!  Thanks to the staff of the National Library for everything.  There were some very useful presentations about where Libraries Australia & Trove are going.

There were also some really interesting presentations by Caroline Brazier, Director of Scholarship and Collections at the British Library and Jenny McDonald, Manager, Customer Engagement, National Library of New Zealand.  They were really good in showing us both what is happening in their countries & also looking at the future. 

The recordings from the day will be on the libraries Australia site in coming days. 
I know that I will go back & have a second listen at some stage & I would encourage others to catch up with their talks when they're available.
