IT SIG AGM and Conference Session [2009]


As they Keynote Speaker Stephen Abram was running late we had little or virtually no time for lunch before the IT-SIG AGM and Conference session. This had an impact with the numbers attending, so with only a few we decided there was a quorum. We continued with the presentations. First up was :


1. Helen Brownlie (university of Otago Library) The changing discovery experiences 2. Brian Flaherty (University of Auckland Library) Stitching costs – how do we provide unified access to the catalogue, to licenced resources, repositories, local indexes etc in a web-scale world.


Two very inspiring presentations with some great discussion after.


We ran out of time for Peter Kennedy’s presentation.
