Abstract

Across Australia and internationally, universities are collaborating with business and industry to ensure their graduates develop the knowledge, skills and qualities that are relevant to the workplace. In this context, the first part of this presentation focuses on the broader national education agenda and industry engagement. The second part focuses specifically on the University of South Australia’s industry partnership with the State Library of South Australia in delivering the the Library and Information Management and Archives and Records Management (LIM/ARM) Program. This partnership provides an opportunity for the students to learn from university lecturers as well as from active practitioners who are at the forefront of practical application.
