RAILS8 Program

The University of South Australia was proud to host the Research Applications in Library and Information Studies 2012 seminar.  This was the 8th event in the series, which brought together educators, researchers and practitioners within the information professions to enable a culture of informed and innovative research practice. All members of the information profession - libraries, archives, information and knowledge management, records, schools, museums - were invited to come and share their ideas and work with others.
