Library Fight Club

“Where did you get that bruise?”

What’s this?

A meeting of library people to discuss hot topics, learn from the discussion and put new ideas and concepts to the test. We will find all the arguments and counter–arguments around a topic and voice opinions that might be unpopular but will force us to analyse and rethink current practises.

ALIA & RIMPA New Grads and Curtin LIS Alumni networking event

The ALIA & RIMPA New Grads and Curtin LIS Alumni are hosting a networking event in June! It’s taken us a few months to organise our first event of 2016; we’ve been working to make our gatherings as exciting and worthwhile as ever.


The June event will be held at Mystic Clue, one of Perth’s real-life room escape puzzle adventures. We will be put inside a themed room, in groups of up to eight people, to follow a story, read clues and solve puzzles in order to get out of the room.


Celebratory dinner to honour Kerry Smith

The ALIAWest Committee invites you to attend a celebratory dinner to honour Dr Kerry Smith who recently received the AM (Member in the General Division of the Order of Australia) award. 

Many of our members will remember Kerry from her time as an academic in Library Studies at Curtin University; others will know her as a highly active force even after her retirement in 2013, and our ALIA Retirees Group will warmly welcome this award for one of their own committee members.
