ALIA and the Future of the profession.

Jennifer Dyer (ALIA NSW Library Technicians Group Convenor.) has asked that this news is passed on to all interested parties.

ALIA has a major project underway to consult with industry on the
Future of the profession. Submissions can be made online but they also intend to run a series of consultations around the country. This seems a great opportunity to state an opinion on the threats and opportunities facing libraries and to hear the opinion of others in all sectors of the industry. Western Sydney Institute of TAFE, Library & Information Services, have offered to host one of the sessions to ensure that Western Sydney is represented.
ALIA has accepted the offer and the event is scheduled for:
Tuesday 30 July - 14:00 to 16:30

The venue is:

Kiranari Room (room L.1.89)
