The 3 prominent circles represent the knowledge communities. The red circle represents Information literacy. The black circle represents the Indigenous knowledge system. The white circle represents the western knowledge system. The green background represents the connections, relationships and knowledge growth.
The black lines represent the Pulay Pulay (male and female) also known as the Rainbow Serpent. The Pulay Pulay represent the sacredness of knowledge and the possession of ‘higher’ knowledge is power. Hence the knowledge communities are entwined with the Pulay Pulay. The key to the success of gaining knowledge is through ongoing connections and relationships that is inclusive of the gender balance in our personal and professional delivery of knowledge in the sacred place of higher education units.
The white solid dots that boarder the 3 knowledge communities represent the higher education learners, who are the students. The black solid dots represent the Rak Mak Mak Marranunggu lecturer. The red solid dots represent the Librarians, TLDG and databases. The emphasis on joining the dots is to demonstrate the preparation and work commitment by a team of professionals to deliver literacy information requires a workplace culture that has good connections and relationships.
