Last week saw the Centre for Organisational and Social Informatics (COSI) celebrate the publication of six new books, all authored or edited by COSI researchers.
The event attracted over 90 people including writers and contributors, information professionals and scholars from Melbourne and beyond.
Guests enjoyed canapés and live jazz as well as a special appearance by Professor Anne Gilliland, Professor and Director of the Archival Studies specialisation in the Department of Information Studies at the University of California Los Angeles. She is also Director of the Centre for Information as Evidence, Graduate School of Education & Information Studies at UCLA.
Four of the books published by Monash University Press:
- Recordkeeping Informatics for a Networked Age
- Digital Divas: Putting the wow into Computing for Girls
- Theories, Practices and Examples for Community and Social Informatics
- Research in the Archival Multiverse
The subject matter of the books reflects the diversity of research undertaken at COSI, ranging from women in IT through to project management in government to archival science, encompassing research and practice.
COSI fosters interdisciplinary collaboration with national and international researchers, industry and community, research partners and other stakeholders.
Research Methods: Information, Systems and Contexts and Developing Government Policy Capability were also launched.
