ALIA disaster recovery: project summary [slides]

This presentation (PowerPoint slides) summarises the 'ALIA Rebuilding with Books' initiative. In August of 2009, the Australian Library and Information Association (ALIA) partnered with the Australian Booksellers Association, and the Australian Publishers’ Association, to provide books to people who had been affected by the bushfires. The project included the State Library of Victoria, the School Library Association of Victoria, the Public Libraries Victoria Network, and the Friends of Libraries Australia.

ALIA statement of support for the role of Course Coordinator in Vocational Education and Training

Over the last five years, that TAFEs have been reducing their investment in course coordinators (the administrative support role). This has a negative effect on the student experience and has serious implications for the capacity of lecturers in terms of delivering the course and ensuring that students graduate with a full understanding of the subjects they have taken. This has the potential to devalue the course and to damage the reputation of the TAFE institution and the Australian Library and Information Association (ALIA) as the accrediting body.
