Information management

Contains research and resources on the broad topic of managing information including libraries, digital libraries, electronic publishing, grey literature, information resources management, open access publishing, scholarly communication, and many other related issues. This collection was established as part of the Grey Literature Strategies ARC Linkage research project (2012 - 2015) a partnership with Swinburne University of Technology, Victoria University, the National Library of Australia, the National State Libraries Australasia, the Australian Council for Educational Research and the Eidos Insittute. It has now been expanded to bring together the wider world of information management supported by APO and Swinburne University of Technology. We welcome contributions by others interested in developing the collection for their own research and practice work.
