Gillian Hallam is Associate Professor at the Queensland University of Technology (QUT) in Brisbane, Australia. She began her career as a special librarian in the business and legal sectors, moving into the academic life at QUT in 2000. Hallam’s experience in teaching and research in the field of library and information science has been widely recognised and she received a number of academic and professional awards. Due to her strong interest in eLearning she was appointed the project leader in the Australian ePortfolio Project (2007-2010). Since 2010 she has worked with the International Federation of Library Associations and Institutions (IFLA) to develop and deliver the international Building Strong Library Associations programme as a core trainer in Ukraine. Last year she was invited to lecture as a visiting professor at the Media University in Stuttgart, Germany. Hallam returned to Australia in March 2012, and since then she has conducted a study on eTextbooks in higher education commissioned by the Council of Australian University Librarians (CAUL), an investigation into libraries as learning institutions for the National and State Libraries Australasia (NSLA), and a review of course accreditation for the Australian Library and Information Association (ALIA).
