As you may have seen from our recent profile of Sally Turbitt we’ve decided to introduce a new category of Industry Leaders, which will focus on senior figures in the GLAMR sector. The industry leaders’ profiles will exist alongside our regular profiles aimed at early to middle career professionals and will shine a spotlight on industry heavyweights who have a wealth of knowledge and expertise. While many readers may only be starting out in a career in the GLAMR sector we think it is important to also highlight people at the other end of the spectrum who have made a significant contribution to their profession over many years, and listen to the advice they can offer students and recent graduates.
|Welcome to the news for October!

Wikipedia Sydney Seminar was held at the State Library of NSW on Wednesday 12th September.
The keynote speaker was Andy Mabbett with supporting talks from Dr Heather Ford from UNSW, Jessica Coates from Australian Digital Alliance, Dr Frances Di Lauro from University of Sydney and Dr Toby Hudson also from University of Sydney.
The recurring theme of the day was Wikimedia Foundation’s vision:
Imagine a world in which every single human being can freely share in the sum of all knowledge. That’s our commitment.
and how well that integrates with the philosophy of the GLAM sector.
