Introducing GLAMRmatch – A Co-Lab Initiative

Based on the principles of reciprocity and knowledge-sharing, the WA chapters of ALIA Students and New Graduates Group,
Australian Society of Archivists, and Curtin University Information Studies Group (CURTIS) are piloting a one-on-one networking experience.

Are you:
● An established GLAMR practitioner?
Or
● A GLAMR student, recent graduate, early career professionals, or practitioner that is
considering changing career streams?

And, are you willing to share your knowledge about your workplace, professional experiences,
or education and/or interested in learning about the workplace practices of another GLAMR
stream?
Our aim is to create a connection between two people, one that provides an opportunity for both
to learn a little bit about the other person’s current work or recent studies.
The concept is simple:
● 1 hour meet-up with no ongoing commitment for either party
● Established practitioners to provide a guided tour of their GLAMR facility
● Visiting GLAMR student/professionals to share recent learnings, motivations or sectoral
experiences

Express your interest in taking part in the pilot now by filling out the below survey: https://curtin.au1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_e2t1gDBV82ODIMJ

if you have any questions, please contact: aliawasngg@gmail.com

Many thanks,
Havva Teede, on behalf of the ALIA Students and New Graduates Group.
