Tributes and treasures: an anthology of stories for ALIA's 80th anniversary 2017

In 2017, for our 80th anniversary, the Australian Library and Information Association (ALIA) invited members to pay tribute to the people and places that have inspired them. We published the stories on the ALIA website and they were so popular that we decided to turn them into a book and place a copy in the time capsule buried at ALIA House in Canberra, to be opened in August 2037. These narratives tell of amazing individuals, close professional and personal friendships, and lifelong connections, many forged through engagement with the Association.
