MmIT FREE Half Day Event for Members – The Digital Individual


The library and information community have always had technology champions and in an increasingly digital world this is needed more than ever. The half day workshop will explore how library and information professionals can leverage new and established technologies to become digital citizens, teachers, researchers and champions. The purpose of the three workshops is not only to help professionals provide a better service befitting the 21st Century but also improve their own skill sets and show value to their organisation.
