Professor Limberg Eminent Visiting Fellow at Curtin University

29 March, 2015

As a further step in the Scandinavian-Australian information literacies research collaboration Professor Louise Limberg visited the Department of Information, Curtin University, Perth, during a fortnight in March. The visit was made possible through Curtin’s Faculty of Humanities Eminent Visiting Fellowship Programme.

Dr Anna Hampson Lundh was delighted to welcome Louise to Western Australia and to continue to work on various projects with her Swedish colleague.

Among many activities at Curtin, Louise gave a public lecture during her visit, summarising core findings from her extensive research career. The lecture, Research on information seeking and learning during 25 years: challenges, lessons and prospects, can be found here.
