The IPWEAQ Knowledge Centre recently achieved global recognition with inclusion in the Library Publishing Directory 2019. The Directory is published by the Library Publishing Coalition in Atlanta, Georgia and details the publishing records of academic and specialist libraries across the world. IPWEAQ’s entry in the Directory features our publishing activities and disciplinary specialties.
The ‘Program Overview’ section in our entry includes the mission statement for the Knowledge Centre, the year publishing activities began, the types of documents contained within the repository and the media formats and platforms used to present them. IPWEAQ’s top publications are listed, and the role the Knowledge Centre plays as a publishing entity is recognised. The Knowledge Centre is the first publishing site for most of the papers delivered as conference proceedings and the directory awards it a rating of 4 (on a scale of 1-5) for its ‘stage of publishing efforts’. This recognition has come after only two years since the Knowledge Centre’s inception. This bodes well for future development and expansion of the repository and the likelihood of continuing inclusion in this and other international publications going forward.
The IPWEAQ Knowledge Centre is fully searchable by subject, key words, speaker/author, event, type (image, podcast, articles, PowerPoint etc) or by date. It includes videos, articles, PowerPoint presentations, podcasts, reports, case studies, recent media and other information on engineering in the public works sector of interest to Queensland practitioners.
Much of the content in the Knowledge Centre is restricted to IPWEAQ members. If you are not a member, you may wish to join.
Conference proceedings are only accessible to paid conference delegates or subscribers to the Proceedings.
If you are unable to access particular sections of the Knowledge Centre ('zero' items will display if you are not entitled to access) and wish to subscribe to our technical publications, please contact Mark.
As a professional institute, it is incumbent on us to bring together in one
place all the knowledge, expertise and learnings that will benefit members
today and well into the future. If you have an article to submit, please email Mark Lamont and If you have an article or presentation already in the Knowledge Centre, be sure that we have tagged you so it is included in your profile.
Additionally, if you see yourself in a
photo, please let us know so we can tag you to create your own searchable
profile in the Knowledge Centre.
When you are submitting an abstract or paper for consideration for any conference, please always ensure you have obtained necessary clearances beforehand.
