Asia Pacific Orchestra Librarians' Summit (APOLS)

image
Welcome to the Asia Pacific Orchestra Librarians’ Summit to be held on Friday 16 December 2022.

The Summit will be held on the traditional unceded lands of the Turrbal and Yuggera peoples in Meanjin (Brisbane). The people of the Turrbal and Yuggara tribes are the traditional indigenous owners of the land on which we will convene. We recognise that they have conducted knowledge-sharing verbally for tens of thousands of years, just as we will gather to share our knowledge at the Summit.

The Summit will be held in a hybrid format, allowing delegates to choose whether to travel to Brisbane or to attend the summit remotely online.

All of the sessions except for the Library Tour will be streamed live to registered delegates. 

On this webpage you will find the schedule, registration, and information about accommodation options for those coming to Brisbane.
