Advocate for Libraries 

ALIA loves advocacy and running campaigns to get things done. We look at the success of the Cooking for Copyright campaign and at the opportunities after 1 Jan 2019, when all the unpublished works become available. Copyright is just one issue - we would love to hear what your library been advocating for and how you are taking steps to achieve it. You might have some internal advocacy underway - are you trying to convince your CEO of a program or initiative that you want to see realised? Have you been successful and how have your plans been realised? Tell us your stories.

Libraries in the post truth society 

Discussions about fake news have led to a new focus on media literacy more broadly and the role of libraries and other educational institutions providing assistance. Librarians have long been taught to help users find and understand the information they need. Yellow journalism isn't new - so tell us how your library helps to inform -  what tools have you found useful? Did you contribute to Wikipedia's #1lib1ref ( One Librarian, One Reference). How have you helped overcome the altfacts phenomenon in your communities?

International affairs 

Is there a global vision for libraries? IFLA thinks so and so does ALIA.  How can libraries shape the international agenda on the issues that matter to us? ALIA is working on the Sustainable Development Goals helping develop and implement strategies to achieve those which are relevant to the LIS sector.

For example: promoting literacy; closing gaps in information needs; providing delivery sites for Government programs and services; advancing digital inclusion by providing ICT, serving the research and academic community and preserving culture and heritage.  How is your library serving as a partner to meet these goals?

Reach out 

The library has long been a place where everyone is welcome. How do you serve specific groups in your community - such as refugees, people with disabilities, those with English as a second language, LGBTQIA, students from overseas, people needing remote access, seniors, and the mentally ill. Tell us how your library service responds to these needs. Are you a librarian activist advocating on behalf of one of these groups? How do you balance different groups' needs? Have you changed opening hours or relaxed library protocols to make accommodation? Let us know your stories.

Lifelong learning 

It's a great way to stay in touch, increase competencies and further develop your networks. Professional development is an important part of the range of ways ALIA supports its membership, and PD can be incorporated into your everyday working lives.  We talk to ALIA mentors and mentees about the benefits of continuous rebooting. How do you keep your skills and learning up to date? Tell us how you manage the balance between competing demands.

The library of things 

So the share economy is a new concept? No. Libraries have been sharing things forever. There's a lot of new non-traditional collections driven by community demand, or perhaps your library lends something unusual needed by the community it serves. We want to hear about those collections or the new ways your community can collaborate at the library. Perhaps it's the loan of a music study to create a song, sound equipment to create a podcast, seeds to create a garden or medical know-how to save a life. We want to hear how your library is bucking tradition.
