ALIA Library Technicians Symposium 2024

Our vision is to host an enjoyable, engaging, inclusive low-cost symposium for library technicians and allied professional roles across the GLAMR sector. We aim to encourage delegates to exchange knowledge, explore ideas, expand their professional connections and reflect on current and future professional practice.

The ALIA Library and Information Technicians’ 2024 Symposium provides a focused meeting point for all Library Technicians and allied Information professionals, from all GLAMR sectors in Australia and the international community.

The Symposium provides an opportunity to learn, connect and build partnerships with colleagues, peers, industry leaders and corporate partners from across the GLAMR sector.

ALIA Library and Information Technicians’ 2024 Symposium will focus on the theme of ‘Embracing the Library Revolution’.

Recent global events such as:

• the pandemic,
• renewed focus and commitment on the global climate crisis,
• local effects of climate change,
• mis and disinformation,
• themes of resilience and sustainability
• Black Lives Matter, Own Voices, Rainbow Groups campaigns and movements

have challenged libraries and the broader GLAMR sector and have provoked us to critically examine current and past practices, often asking us to be bolder and do things differently in a less risk adverse way.


Event Information

The theme is “Embracing the library Revolution'. The aim of the symposium is to explore how these issues and events are impacting the roles of library technicians, library officers, librarians and allied information professionals to:

Revitalise our professional practice and services.

Review our commitment and impact to the Sustainable Development Goals.

Reposition and promote our value in the broader contextual environment.



Speakers coming soon.
