An invitation to the 2022 Research Application in Information and Library Studies (RAILS) Conference. RAILS is Australasia’s premier research conference for information and library studies and related disciplines. This annual conference brings together educators, researchers and practitioners within GLAM sector to encourage a culture of informed and innovative research practice. Sadly, a face to face RAILS has been delayed for two years now, so academics in Charles Sturt University’s School of Information and Communication Studies have planned a smaller, online version of the conference for 2022.
“Off the RAILS: Changing Research for Changing Times” is a FREE online conference bringing together selected invited speakers over two half days on the 29th and 30th of November 2022 (AEDT). Speakers and programme information can be found here including an international timezone program. You will need to register your intention to attend the conference to get the Zoom link. Please register for the conference using this page on Eventbrite. There will also be a Doctoral Showcase which will include a series of short presentations from research students. If you are a doctoral student studying at a university in Australasia, with a research project related to the GLAM sector, and would like to present your research to date as part of the Doctoral Showcase, please contact Prof Philip Hider by Friday the 11 November at firstname.lastname@example.org and also register online.
