As part of our 10 year celebrations, your LARK committee is proud to be hosting #LARK2022 Research for Library and Information Practice Symposium in September at the University Technology Sydney. Great news is that the program is now available here.
We are very excited to have Professor Lisa Given from RMIT University delivering the keynote titled The power of evidence-based practice: fostering social change through library and information research. Lisa has a wealth of experience and knowledge in multi-disciplined research methods, and will provide practical advice about research for those in the information professions. Lisa’s talk will focus on how information workers can enact social change through engaging with user data and a plethora of varied research projects. 
As well as our keynote, on the agenda are a number of presentations and lightning talks covering innovative research projects and studies into academic libraries and non-university library/information sectors. Presentations will cover a great mix of topics on blended learning, online tours, art galleries in the digital environment, makerspaces, evidence-based practice, a school-based reading scheme action research, and study of Saudi Arabian female academics and their research experience. The symposium finishes with two sessions aimed at providing; firstly, insights into a study of the educative role of academic librarians, and then the final session of the day will highlight the challenges and opportunities for practice-based researchers.
As we prepare for the symposium, LARK is inviting anyone who wishes to share some research reflections, and results of their finished research or a work in progress on our blog. You can contact us on Twitter @LARKollektive or by email (

Registrations are open on the ALIA website.
