ALIA University and Research Libraries ACT


ALIA URLs (ACT), (Universities and Research Libraries’ Group), provides a networking and information-sharing forum for all levels of library staff interested in issues and trends affecting the development of university and research libraries. The group organises professional development and training opportunities and provides a network of communication and support. ALIA URLs aims to enhance inter-institutional information exchange within the region, and liaises with other relevant organisations. Planned activities include seminars, monthly meetings with guest speakers, and workshops on topics relevant to the sector.
