Description

As a member of IFLA, the Australian Library and Information Association (ALIA) has been an active participant in IFLA’s International Advocacy Programme. ALIA has been working to assist Australian library and information professionals and their organisations to be part of this international drive for greater social equality, improved economic prosperity and a more sustainable environmental approach.
 
ALIA recommends (1) that the importance of libraries in delivering the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) be acknowledged within the committee’s report, opening the way for further partnerships with government, academia and civil society, to progress the 2030 Agenda; (2) Foreign Affairs, Defence and Trade Committee to consider and comment on the potential for libraries to be SDG awareness and information hubs, promoting the global goals to people of all ages, in communities across the nation.
