Re-engineering our role: A case study of a corporate library at the cutting edge

ALIA Information Online 2015 Conference, 2-5 February 2015, Sydney: at the edge.
 
Abstract:
 
Corporate librarians need to be relevant to the needs of the business in which they operate. In tough times, the corporate library is often the first to go, but how did this geographically disparate team get ahead of the game and become central to plans of the organisation? This paper will explore the journey that this team undertook, to be an integral part of the business, as well as developing their professional skills at the same time.
 

ALIA Groups Handbook

This document provides information related to establishing and managing an ALIA member group. ALIA Groups are formed by ALIA Members and are either geographically or interest based. While some Groups are localised, a number of them operate nationwide.
 
ALIA Groups are run by energetic and committed ALIA Members, who generously volunteer their time to create an active and vibrant network of activities that extends right across Australia. They are supported to do this by ALIA staff from the national office in Canberra and where possible by locally based State Managers.
