Information Futures Forum series

Leading thinkers in scholarly communication, library, information management, technology, education and related fields share their ideas with members of the University community.

These free public events are hosted by the University Library.

The Information Futures Forums are open to staff and interested students of the University. Staff of other universities and public institutions are also welcome to attend.

Many of these events are recorded. Whenever possible the video, audio and presentation slides are made available on this web site.


The Information Futures Forum series began in 2005 under the leadership of Ms Nicki McLaurin Smith, then the Director of Information Management at the University of Melbourne.

The forums continue today under the auspices of the University Librarian, Mr Philip G Kent.
