Free event - Open Data and the Public Sector discussion
Griffith University, which opened in 1971, was named after Sir Samuel Walker Griffith, (1984 1920) who was not only twice the Premier of Queensland, but was also the first Chief Justice of the High Court of Australia and the principal author of the Australian Constitution.

When the university commenced it set out to be "a new kind of university" with some very progressive ideas with its courses. Today, Griffith University is one of the top 5% in the world, with five campuses in South East Queensland.

Griffith runs a program for folk who have been or are students at the university, former or current staff or anyone interested in learning about the direction of libraries in the university or just attending a range of social functions and events at the various campuses.
