Description

This submission from the Australian Library and Information Association (ALIA) discusses how government libraries provide a key part of the information management infrastructure of government agencies. In order for public service employees and clients of government agencies to benefit from online information resources an approach is needed to ensure that:
 
a) quality information resources are available cost-effectively to support policy development and program delivery;
b) government information is available to clients, with a single infrastructure for long term access;
c) public libraries have information and skills to fulfill their role supporting community access to government information; and
d) the collaborative infrastructure is used to delivery access to government information collections.
