  • Support for research management and governance in Malaysia: Report from a two-day workshop Reports
  • Within the context of the Malaysia Education Blueprint for Higher Education 2015-2025, a small project was set up to support research governance and management in Malaysia. It was funded by the British Council and the Malaysian Industry-Government Group for High Technology (MIGHT) through the Newton-Ungku Omar Fund.

    The ACU, Ministry of Higher Education Malaysia, and University of Malaya were appointed to deliver the project activities from November 2015 until the end of March 2016. The project aimed to review the current Malaysian framework for research management and governance, identify needs and areas for improvement, explore best practice in the UK, and develop recommendations for improvement.
    This paper summarises the outcomes and lessons learned from the two-day project workshop, which took place from 2-3 February 2016 at the University of Malaya.

  • Unlocking the potential: new opportunities for Commonwealth libraries Reports
  • This first report of the ACU's Libraries and Information Network draws on a survey undertaken in 2008, and highlights the key role that libraries play, the challenges that they face, and their future potential. Libraries are delivering new and innovative services, are embracing changes in their role and responsibilities, and are securing greater support from within their institutions. They are doing this despite increasing pressures and growing demand. Substantial challenges remain, however; not least is the need for libraries and librarians to ensure that they are better positioned to make the most of new technologies.
