Description

In January 2016 the Australian Library and Information Association (ALIA) Australian Public Library Alliance (APLA) and National and State Libraries Australasia (NSLA) commissioned I & J Management Services Pty. Ltd. to update the guidelines for Australian Public Libraries – Beyond a Quality Service: Strengthening the Social Fabric, Standards and Guidelines for Australian Public Libraries, 2nd ed. 2012, produced by Libraries Alive! Pty Ltd.
 
The purpose of the project was to establish national standards and guidelines for public libraries that reflect the role and expectations of contemporary public libraries and recognise the different circumstances in the eight states and territories, allowing for appropriate local interpretation. The project also aimed to enable Library Managers to report on key performance indicators (KPIs) about the library service’s contribution to community outcomes, feeding into overall measures for local, state and territory governments.
