Description

The Australian Library and Information Association (ALIA) is supportive of the proposed implementation plan’s structure, vision, foundations and focus areas. In summary:

  • We applaud that cultural and social determinants are the foundations for the plan’s structure.
  • We fully support the flexible structure of the implementation plan, in particular that it allows for local response and input, which mirrors our own experience in shaping library services.
  • We note that the plan also accounts for the total life course of an individual, and that it recognises the importance of early intervention on life outcomes.
  • We are particularly supportive of the recognition of the interconnectedness of the focus areas and acknowledge the challenges that this will bring. We stand ready to contribute to the area of cross-sector partnerships.
