About Information Awareness Month (IAM)
Information Awareness Month (IAM) is a collaborative event between various government bodies and professional associations within information, knowledge, records, archives and data management communities, which aims to explore, promote and celebrate better ways of handling information. The month of May was selected as the month when we promote modern and improved practices of managing information in Australia and by Australians.
About IAM 2020 Launch Webinar
The IAM 2020 launch will take the form of an online event with the theme "Informed about your Changing Environment", focused on the importance of the right information, how information can be derived, distributed, used (and misused) in critical situations (such as natural disaster, terror-attack, disease outbreak and similar) and what have we learned from the recent experiences.
