The RSC Day committee is now inviting submissions for the following types of sessions:

The committee will strive to accommodate as many submissions as possible, with a balance of different topics.

We are pleased to bring you once again, Research Support Community Day 2019, to coincide with the THETA Conference. This day is aimed at anyone involved in research support and services in academic libraries. You don’t have to be working in the area or have experience in delivering services to researchers; we encourage a wide range of perspectives and welcome all, including those new to academic libraries. Sessions will be facilitated by research librarians who actively develop and deliver research services, and there will be plenty of time for discussion.
The program will include presentations from a variety of speakers including researchers, librarians, and e-research specialists. There will be opportunities to network and to hear what other Australian research and academic libraries are doing in the research support and services space. Insitutional initiatives will be showcased in lightning talks.
Date: Friday 24 May 2019
Time: 9:00am – 5:00pm
Venue: Case Study Lecture Theatre 1070, Abercrombie Building, University of Sydney.
This event is being hosted by the University of Sydney Library.
Maps and information about the University of Sydney campus are available at http://sydney.edu.au/maps/index.shtml
The next Research Support Community Day will take place on Friday 24 May (in the week of THETA) at the University of Sydney.
