Libraries and business

Submission in response to the Australian Government Smart Cities Plan, June 2016

The Australian Library and Information Association (ALIA) and the Australian Public Library Alliance (APLA) welcome the opportunity to respond to the Australian Government’s Smart Cities Plan, with its three pillars: Smart investment, Smart Policy and Smart Technology.
 
Public libraries have an important role to play in this vision:

  • Libraries as hubs for urban development
  • Libraries as technology hotspots
  • Libraries supporting business and enterprise
  • Libraries providing lifelong learning opportunities

 

Books Create Australia update: November 2018

Books Create Australia is an alliance of those working in the Australian book industry who all agree: a reading nation makes for a better nation. With that in mind, authors, publishers, libraries and booksellers have come together as Books Create Australia to take collaborative steps to preserve, promote and value Australian books and writing not only in the short-term, but also in the future. This document sets out the achievements of the alliance.
