ALIA is a true community of library and information professionals and supporters. We are made up of a range of members and staff who work as a whole and in special interest groups to support and develop the LIS sector.
ALIA South Australia is a newly-revived, cross-sectoral group for all information professionals and GLAM members in South Australia. It is a forum for members to discuss events, take part in professional development activities and network with like-minded people within the state and regional areas close to the border. We encourage anyone interested to let us know!
The ALIA Student and New Graduates Group provides a forum for new graduates to communicate and socialise with colleagues and build relationships and networks within the profession. The group aims to facilitate networking for the new generation of library professionals, provide a forum for the discussion of issues relevant to new professionals, organise meetings and training specifically relevant to students and new graduates and facilitate the introduction of new graduates into the wider ALIA community. By doing so, the group aims to ensure the long-term future of the Association (relevance and member participation), and to support and assist with the mentoring program in each state.
