Be different. Do different.

In 2013, Information Online is packing up and heading north to the river city. And she’s bringing the New Librarians’ Symposium (NLS6) along for the ride! For one fantastic week in February, Brisbane will see an influx of information professionals both new and seasoned for a week packed full of professional development and networking opportunities.

A different venue

For the very first time, Information Online will be held outside of Sydney, at Brisbane’s Convention and Exhibition Centre. NLS6 will take place over two days leading into Information Online.

A different committee

After many, many years of tireless work on Information Online, the majority of the Online committee has moved on and we have a bunch of fresh faces on board for 2013.

A different program

We’re shaking things up! Get ready for a different conference experience and a new approach to programming.

A different call for contributions

We’ll be calling for session proposals, not abstracts, and we’re tightening up the timeline. We’ll have a call for proposals out by the end of March, so start thinking about what you’re going to submit.

Two very different events

Information Online and NLS6 will be events unlike any you’ve seen before!

Help us be different

We invite you to tell us what you want to see in Brisbane next February. What is Information Online to you? New graduates and students, what does NLS mean for you? This is your first opportunity to get involved in shaping these events. Share your thoughts in the comments!
