(2 February 2015, Canberra) In the lead up to Library Lovers’ Day on 14 February, The Australian Library and Information Association (ALIA) today launched FAIR which campaigns for a fair, open and democratic society where information belongs to everyone.
FAIR stands for Freedom of Access to Information and Resources. The website is: fair.alia.org.au
It will lobby for a series of issues including well funded libraries, copyright law reform, the digitisation of our history, evidence-based policy making, lifelong learning and qualified library staff in schools.
ALIA created FAIR to give people a way to actively support all kinds of libraries including public, TAFE, university, health, law, business and government as well as our National and State Libraries.
The detailed announcement is here.
