River of Opportunities

The River of Opportunities events have been held in a variety of regional locations and is traditionally held in alternate years to the National Library and Information Technicians symposium. In 2014, we will hold the eighth River of Opportunities event in Geelong. The program will enable delegates to examine new initiatives that might be utilised in their own workplace and provide a forum to discuss issues and ideas with colleagues from similar libraries, over one and a half days.
