The purpose of Information Awareness Month (IAM) is to increase public awareness of information and its place in all aspects of daily life. By focusing attention at a number of events during the month of May on the role that information plays in day to day activities, the value of good information practices and policies are highlighted and promoted.
The theme for IAM 2014 is ‘Collaboration and Innovation’.
IAM will be launched by Mr David Fricker Director-General National Archives of Australia at the National Archives, ACT, Parkes on Thursday 1 May, 2014.
IAM is a collaborative event between various bodies within the records, archives, library, knowledge, information and data management communities and is now in its seventh year.
