Description

This submission from the Australian Library and Information Association (ALIA) discusses the role of library and information professionals in supporting formal education and lifelong learning through school, TAFE, university, public and special libraries. In order to run these institutions and provide these services, we need tertiary qualified library and information professionals.
 
Under the government's draft legislation, teacher librarianship units of study will be funded in line with teacher education units of study in the proposed new model. However, ALIA is advocating for all library and information science courses to be reassigned from Cluster 1 to Cluster 2, alongside IT and education, given our professions’ close alignment.
