Share it: resource sharing futures 2018 conference program

Share it: Resource Sharing Futures Conference, 10-11 May 2018 Canberra
 
In collaboration with ALIA, Libraries Australia held Share it, a two-day resource sharing futures event. The aim of Share it was to discuss the current Australian resource sharing landscape and issues around the complex world of modern resource sharing. A further aim was to determine whether there is still a need for a national resource sharing service and, if so, to develop a resource sharing road map and action plan for Australia.
 

Australian Government libraries: policy decisions based on fact

Government library and information professionals connect politicians and government employees to the essential information they need to make decisions based on facts, not fiction. The Australian Library and Information Association (ALIA) calls for all state, territory and federal government departments to have equal access to quality information and resources, managed by qualified library and information professionals. 
 

ALIA guidelines for special libraries experiencing service reviews

Every special library is likely to experience the review process at some point, often triggered by changes in the parent organisation. It is important to remember that while a review is challenging, it is also an opportunity to reinforce messages about the role and value of the library and information service. The review process can result in the reduction of some library and information services, but others find themselves coming out of the process in an even stronger position.

Improving library services for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples

Libraries across Australia are focused on improving services for people identifying as Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander, whether they live in cities, towns or remote communities.
 
This document has examples of initiatives that are already underway, while highlighting opportunities for further improvement. It shows that libraries are maximising the use of their facilities, developing thoughtful programs, taking a more respectful approach to collections and expanding professional development opportunities for library and information professionals.
 

The library and information agenda 2015

This document summarises how people who work in the library and information field want Australian Governments to engage with library and information services during their term of office. Throughout the political process, the Australian Library and Information Association (ALIA) will be lobbying for The Library and Information Agenda – four themes and 10 items which we believe are essential for promoting literacy, enabling citizens to be well-informed, supporting socially inclusive communities and contributing to the success of Australia as a knowledge-based economy.

Health librarianship workforce and education: research to plan the future

In late 2009, Health Libraries Australia (HLA) received a small grant to undertake a national research project to determine the future requirements for health librarians in the workforce in Australia and develop a structured, modular education framework (post-graduate qualification and continuing professional development structure) to meet these requirements.
