What our attendees have to say:
'After not having been to a CRIG Seminar for a few years, I was pleased to see it has continued to be a useful and informative forum where practitioners actively explore current and up and coming issues.'
- Keely Chapman, University Library and Student success, RMIT University
'CRIG’s forums, seminars, and joint events are an invaluable and accessible platform which expose Librarians to new and emerging theories and practices. I have participated in discussions on topics such as eLearning, partnership building, research as praxis, and leadership. The opportunity to not only listen to esteemed professionals, but also to engage with them and other attendees, have been a key part of my professional understanding and development as a Librarian.'
- Romney Adams, Subject Librarian, Monash University
