Australian qualifications – widened eligibility
  • Have you completed a Library and Information Science (LIS) qualification NOT accredited by ALIA?
  • Have you completed a qualification that includes a substantial component of LIS studies and have evidence of professional competence?
  • Are you a current ALIA personal member?

If you answered YES to all these questions, then you may apply for an assessment. This involves a review of your qualifications, knowledge of LIS, relevant employment history and professional development logbook and you will receive a certificate if successful.
