Each year the ALIA community recognises excellence in professional practice and research within the field of library and information management.
We offer a range of awards, grants and scholarships that celebrate the achievements of our Members and you can find out more about past recipients on the ALIA Honours Board.

To recognise the work of outstanding peers and their contribution to the library and information sector, the ALIA Board of Directors encourages members of the Association to put forward nominations for the Australian Honours Awards. The Order of Australia recognises Australians for outstanding service or exceptional achievement.
Everyone that is recognised is nominated by someone in the community. This means we all have the ability to recognise someone for their hard-work and service. It also means that it is up to all of us to ensure our national awards system represents our diversity - across gender, cultural backgrounds and categories of endeavour. The Governor-General of Australia has written to us and we are working with his Office to both raise awareness of the Order of Australia and improve its diversity.
It only takes a few moments of your time to nominate someone exceptional. To start, click here.
