About Asia-Pacific Library and Information Conference 2018
Australian Library and Information Association (ALIA), Library and Information Association of New Zealand Aotearoa (LIANZA), and Library Association of Singapore (LAS) are delighted to announce their first joint conference between the three associations.
The 2018 conference will be the fourth in a series which began more than 30 years ago. The first joint Australia-New Zealand conference was held in Christchurch in 1981; the second in Brisbane in 1984, and the third in Wellington in 1994. This will be the first time that ALIA and LIANZA are joined by LAS.
Conference theme: Roar | Leap | Dare
Inspired by motifs and imagery commonly associated with Australia, New Zealand and Singapore, the theme is intended to draw focus to the issues of:
Roar – how to we advocate for our communities and industries? How do we promote and demonstrate the value of what we do?
Leap – how do we spring forward and build momentum? What are the innovations and connections in technology, service delivery and content that are shaping our services, environments and work?
Dare – what risks are we taking in our organisations and work lives? What are the stories of revolution or evolution, success or failure, in your library, industry, country or career?
