Nationhood, national identity and democracy - Submission 63
 
Submission from the Australian Library and Information Association (ALIA) submission in response to the Senate Inquiry into Nationhood, National Identity and Democracy Discussion Paper - 30 September 2019
 
All Australian public, school, university, TAFE and special libraries contribute to the development of an informed society and to citizens who can participate in public debate and decision making. Therefore, libraries are well placed to contribute to the discussion around nationhood, national identity and democracy. With a well-funded National, State, Territory and public library network, people have a better understanding of what it is to be Australian; are better equipped to engage in the democratic process and are more likely to be engaged citizens. The Australian Library and Information Association (ALIA) asks for the important work of libraries in this arena to be acknowledged in the Committee’s report.
