The Australian Library Journal is an internationally recognised journal that showcases the best of Australian library and information research and practice. It has been reaching discerning and influential Australian libraries since 1951. Published quarterly, it contains a wide coverage of Australian library issues ranging from ongoing research to day-to-day articles from practitioners in the workplace.

It is the acknowledged flagship publication of the Australian Library and Information Association, supporting the Association's Objects by documenting progress in research and professional practice and stimulating discussion on issues relevant to libraries and librarianship. The Journal is an appropriate vehicle for publishers, suppliers and services wishing to reach the decision-makers. The journal is available through subscription.
