ATSILIRN (Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Library and Information and Resource Network) was established after it was recognised that there was a need for a support and information network for Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander people working in libraries and for those people servicing the information needs of Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander peoples.

The Network became an ALIA Group in the second half of 2018 and a meeting was held at ALIA House on 31 January, 2019, to talk about future plans.  ATSILIRN also published and maintains the ATSILIRN Protocols for Libraries, Archives and Information Services
