Keynote speaker announcement! Mr John Willsteed #iamlbris16

IAML Australia is pleased to announce Mr John Willsteed will be joining us at our 2016 conference in Brisbane as a Keynote speaker. As a musician, Mr Willsteed is best known as a member of Brisbane punk band The Go-Betweens making him a popular choice to speak on the theme Local History, Local Music.

Mr Willsteed will discuss how the digital world and all its aspects have dramatically altered our ability to share cultural collections. More and more material is collected daily; digitised, tagged, codified and stored. Methods for sharing collections online have become more sophisticated, allowing access to an unprecedented quantity and variety of cultural material.

2016 Conference workshop - Basic Salvage Techniques of Library Collections

At the 2015 IAML Australia conference a need was expressed for the next conference to discuss practical knowledge and offer guidance relating to disaster management for librarians. Unfortunately, some of our members have had first hand experience with disaster situations, while others have had none and wondered, what would I do? Based on this feedback, the 2016 conference in Brisbane will offer a special workshop designed specifically for our needs and delivered by State Library of Queensland's Collection Preservation Manager, Grant Collins.
