Collections, Technology and the Future
We are excited to invite you to join us for our 16th Health Libraries Inc Conference on 13th September 2019.
This year's conference will explore how print and online collections are curated, discovered, accessed, and evaluated; and librarians' changing relationship with this evolving paradigm.
Keynote Speaker - Danny Kingsley
What *is* a library in an 'open' future?
Dr Danny Kingsley is an expert in developing strategy and policy in the higher education and research sector with extensive international experience, most recently in Europe and the UK. Her work involves aspects of advocacy, professional development, research and communication through developing relationships with all levels of the scholarly communication landscape, from the individual researcher, to editors and publishers of journals and monographs, funding bodies, research institutions and government. Her research centres on scholarly communication with interests in the academic reward structure, scholarly infrastructure and open access advocacy. She sits on multiple committees and has written extensively and presented all over the world in this area.
Until May 2019 Danny worked as the Deputy Director of Cambridge University Libraries (Scholarly Communication & Research Services). The announcement of Cambridge's Position Statement on Open Research in February 2019 was the culmination of four years' work in this area. Danny was also instrumental in the formation of the Scholarly Communication Competencies Coalition (SC3) looking at meeting the emerging skill need of this area. Danny started at Cambridge in January 2015 and oversaw all aspects of scholarly communication at the University, including compliance with funder open access policies, research data management, intellectual property, copyright and other areas.
Before moving to the UK she established the Australasian Open Access Strategy Group. This followed on from working for four years as the Manager of Scholarly Communication at the Australian National University, a natural extension of her 2008 PhD into the range of ways different disciplines engage with open access. She has worked as a science communicator for 15 years, including two years with ABC Science Online as a journalist for News in Science.
