Margaret Gardner on libraries & universities

How should libraries adapt to a world where education is becoming more accessible? Professor Margaret Gardner talks about the changing relationship between universities and libraries, and the interaction students have with libraries on and off campus. Libraries and universities are places of dynamic engagement and learning. The collaborative project to provide wireless access at the State Library of Victoria and RMIT University is an example of a successful cohesive approach to providing information and access.

Margaret was appointed as vice-chancellor and president of RMIT University in April 2005, having previously held the position of deputy vice-chancellor (academic) at the University of Queensland. She has engaged extensively with government and industry and served on numerous boards in the arts and education sectors.
