(29 August 2016, Adelaide) The Australian Library and Information Association (ALIA) welcomes a delegation of senior Singapore librarians to the ALIA National 2016 Conference being held in Adelaide, with six representatives from the National Library Board.
Sue McKerracher, Chief Executive Office of ALIA, said: We invited colleagues from the National Library of Singapore with the aim of building closer ties with our LIS colleagues in the Asia Pacific region. During this busy conference week, we look forward to sharing knowledge, exchanging valuable insights, discussing experiences and extending our professional networks with our close Singaporean neighbours.
‘We hope that other LIS colleagues in the Asia-Pacific region may consider attending our conference, particularly in 2018, when ALIA and the Library and Information Association of New Zealand (LIANZA) work together to produce the first joint conference since 1994.’
Following the conference, the Singaporean delegation will be travelling to Melbourne, Canberra and Sydney to meet senior staff, and visit other libraries, museums and archives before returning to Singapore.
