Project 2.2.2

Library service

Project summary

The John Fornachon Memorial Library develops and maintains a major collection of historical, current and relevant print and digital resources, and offers a range of information discovery tools and services to all stakeholders. The objective is to ensure that all involved in the Australian grape and wine sector have timely access to published technical and scientific information to support learning, understanding, and the adoption of research outcomes.

This project builds and manages the library collection through strategic sourcing of new materials, managing copyright compliance requirements, cataloguing materials into the library databases, and preserving materials to ensure continued access over time. It will continue to seek innovative ways to deliver technical and scientific content, and facilitate the use of that information and knowledge, through the use of digital technologies.
