CLOSING DATE FOR ENTRIES - Friday 6 May.
We're on a nationwide hunt for all those incredible things found in a library's collection.
Step inside or visit library websites and we know that everyone will be surprised and perhaps a little amazed at what you can find in a library's collections. Libraries have a lot offer as well as books and reference materials. Think about ebooks, meeting rooms, magazines, music and DVDS, software, tools, historic documents and more.
ALIA Members have an encyclopaedic knowledge of their libraries. So we are asking librarians and library staff to help us search for the treasures, the wonderful and the useful.
We're asking ALIA Members and the public to send us an email with the short description of the #FabulousFinds and to attach a photo/s. Using the hashtag, #FabulousFinds, means that we can all join in together and share the conversation on social media.
On Monday 23 May, the first day of Library and Information Week, ALIA will distil all of the #FabulousFinds into a list and issue a media release about 'the 10 things you never knew you could find in a library'. Join us and let's show Australia the undiscovered, the beautiful and the wonderful things that you never knew you find in a library collection.
