alia memorandum of understanding (MoU)

ALIA maintains a number of Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with like-minded associations.  The MoU identify the working relationships, shared interests and common understandings that exist between the collaborating associations.  They clarify the kind of support that will be provided, including benefits for individual members of the associations concerned.

  • Australiasian College of Health Informatics

  • Australian Law Librarians Association
