The 6th New Librarians’ Symposium is going to challenge you to Be Different in more ways than one! We’ve developed an action and ideas-packed program filled with a range of speakers from across the industry (and outside it) and we want you to Do Different by volunteering.

NLS6 is looking for LIS students who might not be able to afford to attend the symposium, but are willing to volunteer their time in order to be part of the experience. By volunteering, you will gain valuable skills that will shine on your resume, network with industry people and inspire those around you with hard work and a smile! You will do a variety of jobs including: session and workshop assistant, roving, technical assistance and other odd jobs as required.

Other than the amazing benefits listed above, there are extra perks to volunteering.

  • free entry into the Symposium
  • a volunteer T-shirt commemorating the event
  • free morning tea and lunch
  • attend a session of your choice

You will also be expected to be part of the team assisting with the social BBQ dinner (we will feed you in return for all this hard work lol).

We require NLS6 volunteers to be hard working, courteous and punctual. Volunteers are the most important element of the Symposium as you ensure things run smoothly and problem free.

To register your interest, email volunteers@newlibrarianssymposium.com with the subject heading “Student Volunteer.” Include a brief biography stating your particular areas of interest within the library and information sector and where you attend university by Friday, November 23.

Thank you for supporting NLS6!
