Canberra, Thursday 24 November, 2016: The Library at Ultimo TAFE in Sydney is under threat.
ALIA and FAIR are supporting a campaign to keep all levels of the library open for students.
TAFE Corporate has plans to take over level two of Ultimo TAFE library which will result in a significant reduction of valuable library space including student computers, study rooms and quiet study areas.
Here's a petition to sign if you'd like to save the library space.
There's also a 'Save Ultimo Library' facebook page to keep up to date.
FAIR stands for Freedom of Access to Information and Resources. The Australian Library and Information Association (ALIA) created FAIR to give people a way to support all kinds of libraries. FAIR lobbies for well-funded libraries, copyright law reform, the digitisation of our history, evidence-based policy making, lifelong learning and qualified library staff in schools. FAIR was created by ALIA to bring together all of its advocacy work. www.fair.alia.org.au
