ACCESS Meeting, Thursday 20 August 2009

The next ACCESS meeting will be held at QUT Gardens Point Campus, Room V713 (7th Floor) , V Block (the Library) on Thursday 20 August 2009.

The meeting will start at 12 noon, and finish at 1.45pm.


The speaker will be Martin Borchert, Associate Director Library Services (Information Resources and Research Support Services) at QUT.

Martin will be sharing some insights on decision making and information resources. He will be focusing on information resources and research support; and hopefully will clarify some of the issues and trends that we face in relation to information resources (ebooks, databases, search engines...), research support (document delivery, collaborative technologies, publishing...).


Campus maps are available at http://www.qut.edu.au/about/location/index.jsp

It's bring your own lunch... so come prepared !!

Please RSVP to me at dnmiers@wbmpl.com.au if you intend coming, as we need to make sure our numbers will fit the room allocated to us.

Dear Colleagues,

in his presentation, Martin Borchert gave us his view on some of the latest technologies (EG. depository systems, also Craig Milne mentioned Connetea as a way for us to share information on engineering resources .

Last year Loretta put me on this other one called Zotero, http://www.zotero.org/.
Its drawback is that it is Mozilla Firefox based and I had trouble to convince my IT manager to let me install it on my PC. Otherwise, it is just fabulous. Thanks Loretta.
