    I just booked in for this. It should be very interesting.

  • Doreen Sullivan, Convenor says:

    Glad you booked in early for this event, since’s now completely full (despite only being advertised this week), seeming to be of interest to many.

  • Pauline says:

    Hi – any chance of this being recorded and then put onto the ALIA site to be viewed by members who were unable to attend because of distance or the event being booked out? It would be appreciated.

    • Doreen Sullivan, Convenor says:

      We won’t be recording the event, but we will have a report, and hopefully slides from the session, posted to this blog and the ALIA RAIS website.

  • Ross says:

    Very informative session. I look forward to reading the report.

What’s this?
