cardiParty 2019.03 Sydney – Liz Stokes @ SLNSW

 Registration is closed for this event
Join us at this GLAMSLAM Fringe event on Thursday 14 March, 6.30pm at State Library NSW – Macquarie Room – for a special one-off (maybe) cardiParty hosted by founders Justine Hanna and Hugh Rundle and featuring guest speaker Liz Stokes from the Australian Research Data Commons.

Before joining ARDC, Liz cut her Data Librarian teeth at UNSW and later UTS, and has been part of the organising team over the last 2 years for Resbaz Sydney – an extraordinary unconference of skill sharing and digital literacy. She will share stories about how librarians learn and why they should be stepping into the data space. This of course will be injected with a good serve of enthusiasm for awesome projects and profession-appropriate training materials. We are also hoping she will relaunch her side project because who wouldn’t want that?

Getting There

Train: Martin Place (200m) or St James (450m) stations
Ferry: Circular Quay
Bus: Sydney Explorer
Car: The nearest parking station is Sydney Hospital, located on Hospital Road. We recommend public transport instead.

The Macquarie Room is located beside the State Library café and bookshop on the ground floor in the Macquarie Street building. Walk straight through the café to the end of the room and you’ll find it. The staff member on the information counter will be able to direct you if you get lost.


If you have a Mobility Parking sticker, you can use the parking spaces at Shakespeare Place, on the corner of Macquarie Street and the Cahill Expressway. The State Library is wheelchair accessible and has accessible toilet facilities. More information about accessibility is available on the SLNSW website.
