ALIA joins Professions Australia
The Australian Library and Information Association (ALIA) has joined Professions Australia, the peak body for professional associations.
ALIA CEO Sue McKerracher said it joined as ‘our interests align in the important areas of professional education and advocacy’. ‘The library and information profession supports the values of fairness, equity and the free flow of information and ideas, which in turn support the Australian Government’s digital transformation agenda and the international Sustainable Development Goals,’ said McKerracher.
Professions Australia represents almost half a million members, with an interest in consumer information and protection, professional standards and practice, ethics, continuing professional development, and skills and knowledge sharing.
