Linda O'Brien on libraries & learning

Increased collaboration between researchers and libraries is required to manage huge data sets dispersed across the globe. New technologies present opportunities to preserve unrepeatable events and data in older formats. Linda O'Brien discusses the transformational capabilities of new information and communication technologies on research and scholarship. She discusses how these technologies are being used in e-scholarship and e-research applications, and the impact of these new technological environments on libraries.

Linda is vice-principal (information) at the University of Melbourne, a role that incorporates chief information officer and university librarian. She was previously vice-president (university services) at the University of Newcastle.
