Australia Library and Information Association
The Australian Library and Information Association (ALIA) recognises that government agency libraries frequently hold collections of long-term significance for Australian heritage and research. These guidelines are intended for all Commonwealth, state and territory government agencies, as a guide to what to do in situations where agency libraries plan to dispose of material. The guidelines provide for the orderly disposal of library collections when the parent organisation has decided not to retain them. Such circumstances may arise where a government library is closed, merged with another library, moved to another location, or where a library is reduced in size or scope.
