History of Research Support Community Day


In November 2011, in establishing the lack of PD available for librarians working in research support, the current chair of the Research Support Community Day Organising Committee, Jayshree Mamtora, then working as Research Services Coordinator at Charles Darwin University, put out a call to set up a committee to help organise such a national activity. There was an enthusiastic response with a small group coming together in 2012 to organise the first Research Support Community Day, held in February 2013. Following the success of the first event, it was agreed that the event would be held annually to coincide with the ALIA Information Online and VALA conferences in February each year.
