ALIA Library & Information Week (LIW) is the week where we celebrate the work that library and information workers do all around Australia. The 2023 theme is ‘Where’s the Source’ and ALIA Island would like to celebrate our library workforce in Tasmania – our source of strength.
Head along to IMAS on Wednesday 2 August for a networking event hosted by ALIA Island and the University of Tasmania. The event is designed for people working in libraries across sectors to come together, connect and learn from each other. There will be opportunity to network, and hear a series of lightning talks from speakers across the library and information sector.
