New Librarians Symposium 2023

New Librarians Symposium 2023

NLS aims to provide a low cost and high value symposium specifically geared towards students and new professionals from around the country. The inspiring event allowed future movers and shakers of the Australian LIS industry to come together and discuss future possibilities and ways to get there. NLSX encourages attendees to exchange knowledge, to explore ideas and to expand their professional circle, and their thinking.

Event Information

The ALIA NLSX theme is “eXchange, eXplore, eXpand'.

eXchange: The symposium will provide opportunities for exchanging knowledge across the GLAMR sector, across generations and across social barriers.

eXplore: Presenters and delegates will be encouraged to explore challenging, emerging and innovative ideas and step outside their comfort zones.

eXpand: Opportunities will be provided for delegates to expand their professional networks while broadening  their horizons and looking beyond their own experiences.
