Personal profile

Personal profile

Currently Involved in research at Charles Sturt University. Mary's research draws on a multi-disciplinary background and is focused on the intersection of libraries, books and learning in both the contemporary and historical context. Crossing sectors and historical eras Mary's research examines the role information and information agencies play in addressing equity, promoting social inclusion and influencing broader social issues.  Her recent research has examined the provision and purpose of information services in the Vocational Education sector both in contemporary society, and historically, within the early penal settlements of Australia. She also has researched extensively in the area of education for the information professions both in Australia and internationally from the 1930s onward examining factors which have shaped the development and constructs of contemporary LIS education. Reflecting her interdisciplinary interests Mary has published and presented across these disciplines.
