You can download a PDF of my Scripturient column featuring Karen here, and a transcript of our conversation is below.Read more
New strategic plan for Supreme Court Library Queensland
I’m pleased to announce the publication of one of my recent projects, the new five-year strategic plan for the Supreme Court Library of Queensland, Australia (SCLQ).
The project, which ran through 2018 and early 2019, comprised research, interviews, survey and workshop design, plus co-writing the finished plan with Supreme Court Librarian David Bratchford.
Researching and writing the plan gave me the opportunity to explore one of the most fascinating and challenging sectors of the information profession – the law.
