Dr Asim Qayyum

Lecturer, School of Information Studies

Asim has worked with many library sectors as an educator and researcher in Australia and in international settings. His current ongoing research project with ACT libraries is an example of his goal of strengthening the existing ties between academia and the profession. Focusing on evaluating the impact of libraries on the communities they serve, the project aims to ensure that the library sector continues to meet the demands and needs of the communities it serves and maintain libraries’ leading role in creating a better informed and more information literate citizenry.
