Dr Merga is an exceptional advocate for school libraries in Australia. She is a Senior Lecturer at Edith Cowan University in WA and her research findings in literacy explore the role that librarians, teachers, and parents can play in supporting young people to become life-long readers.

She will be supported by other research experts and experienced practitioners who will provide an opportunity to explore the application of her ideas and equip delegates with strategies to use in the workplace to advocate for the place of the school library.
