Mal Booth   Mal Booth

Mal Booth is acting University Librarian at the University of Technology, Sydney. UTS Library is currently planning a brave new library and preparing an underlying framework for it that includes an automated library retrieval system, RFID, a much improved resource discovery system and a new service model for academic libraries. It won't be more of the same.
Mal was formerly Head of the Research Centre at the Australian War Memorial and responsible for Web Strategy, including Web 2.0 initiatives. From 2006 to 2008 he curated the Lawrence of Arabia & the Light Horse exhibition and in late 2008 he made the first curatorial visit to a war zone by one of the Memorial's librarian/archivists to identify, record and collect records of war from Australian forces before they withdrew from Iraq.
 
     
 
 
     
 
Kate Davis   Kate Davis

Kate Davis is an Associate Lecturer in Library and Information Science at the Queensland University of Technology. Kate’s background as an information professional is in online collections and services management. She has worked in academic and public libraries and at the National Library of Australia. In 2010, she made the leap from practice to academia, taking up her position within the Information Studies Group at QUT. Kate’s teaching is focused on technology and its role in library service provision, particularly in online services. She also teaches in the collection management and information services spaces. She is a self-confessed gadget girl who loves to play with technology (although she’s definitely a bit of a cut and paste techie).

Kate is heavily involved in the Australian library and information science profession (LIS). She served as chair of the ALIA New Generation Advisory Committee and has been on organising and program committees for a number of conferences. In 2008, she received the ALIA Metcalfe Award, which recognises high achievement for early career LIS practitioners. She is passionate about the role of research and evidence in LIS practice and is a strong supporter of student and new graduate publishing. She currently coordinates student article submissions for Australian Library Journal.

Kate’s research interests relate to corporate use of social media and teaching in blended learning environments. But all that’s on hold for now, as she pursues her PhD through a research project focussed on the information experiences of new mothers in social media spaces.

When she’s not working, you’ll find Kate working on her PhD (well, that’s the official line!). Aside from information and technology, Kate’s interests are cooking, crafting, and reading young adult fiction.
