ALIA WA Symposium 2016

Primary tabs

Registrations are now open for the ALIA WA Symposium 2016. All library and information professionals are invited to attend this full day PD event. Hear about and discuss some of the exciting ideas and activities that are happening in the WA library community under the theme of ‘The Unexpected’.


The Symposium will be based on a ‘flipped' conference model to encourage discourse and ideas. Papers will be provided to participants before the event to read and form ideas, opinions and questions. On the day of the Symposium, each speaker will give a short recap of their topic and a facilitated panel will be used to discuss the content.


Speakers include Megan Rosenbloom, one of American Library Association’s Movers and Shakers of 2016, as well as writer Dr Jack Sargeant. Best of all, come and hear about the exciting things that your colleagues are doing here in WA from our local presenters.
