Darwin ALIA Top End Symposium

The ALIA Top End Symposium is the premier library event in the Northern Territory and attracts library participants across the NT from a range of libraries. This year the Symposium theme was "e-volving education" focussing on how the library industry maintains its own education in order to stay on top of information trends.

Our symposium paper, Evolving and Changing with Workplace ELearning: 23 ways your staff can grow, was well received and elicited lots of questions from the audience.

Roxanne Missingham ALIA President gave an interesting paper keynote and spoke of library workforce trends. Later she mentioned to us that she planning to do 23 Things with her Federal Parliamentary Library staff.

The other keynote, Dr Gillian Hallam, presented the results of her research into Australian library workforce planning drawing out the NT component of findings.

Two Charles Darwin University librarians gave a very good session on podcasting You can access their CDU library podcasts here

The papers were all recorded as a podcast. All the printed papers will be placed on the ALIA website in due course.
