Grace Information & Records Management recently hosted the Records and Information Management Professionals Australasia (RIMPA) event at Curtin University Hub for Immersive Visualisation and eResearch (HIVE) facility in conjunction with Information Awareness Month.The event saw an informative talk by Dr. Jenna Hartel, Associate Professor from the Faculty of Information, University of Toronto, who is a Visiting Fellow at Curtin University.
Her presentation titled “Information Celebration!” explored how visual data is collected from around the world, including how various cultures interpret and associate with information.
Grace Information & Records Management’s Anne Blight, Perth Manager, was also a guest speaker following on from Dr. Hartel. Anne discussed the importance of information in our ever evolving world, how accessibility to information has changed with the introduction of different technologies such as web-based storage and the importance of having appropriate security measures in place to protect information.
The event drew crowds from the academic, corporate and government department representatives, proving to be an informative and educational event, and deemed a success by all involved.
