ALIA Acquisitions

ALIA Acquisitions is a national group aiming to inform and educate by supporting and promoting best practice in acquisitions and serials management, collection development and preservation, and to promote use of appropriate and leading-edge technology.

From 2007 Acquisitions has incorporated ASSIG (The Australian Serials Special Interest Group), raising awareness of unique issues relating to serials management between information professionals, serial providers, aggregators and knowledge consumers.

The group aims to establish a national forum for the interchange of ideas and co-operation including the promotion of best practice in acquisitions and serials management in all formats across all sectors, influencing optimal distribution and access to information resources. The section will collaborate with other groups locally, nationally and internationally.
