The speaker's are in and the talks are sorted, and it's looking like another fantastic conference. Check out the details of all the talks below or download a one-page NDF2014 programme (PDF, 123kb). with session times and locations.

It’s a stellar line-up with talks covering a wide range of issues – art, transmedia, building communities, open content and open platforms, digital humanities, collection practice - and of course public policy and grey literature!

This year's keynote speakers are leading thinkers in the digital culture sector:

  • Brewster Kahle from the Internet Archive in San Francisco
  • Mia Ridge from the UK's Open University
  • Leigh Carmichael from MONA in Tasmania
  • Evelyn Wareham from Statistics New Zealand
  • Rick Shera from Lowndes Jordan

 

And that's just the keynotes. Local and international speakers complete the line-up in a range of sessions.

In particular Amanda Lawrence, research manager with this project will be speaking on Tuesday 25 November on the topic of managing digital grey literature for public policy and its value for libraries and collections, and of course presenting findings from the research.

Looking forward to meeting people in New Zealand interested in the issue of digital grey literature and public policy and finding out more about the situation in New Zealand.
