There are several ways that you can get involved in the campaign,
You can read our main points in the template letter to candidates which details how supporting libraries:
- Gives every child a reading start.
- Ensures that students have access to the information they need and the ability to distinguish genuine facts from fake news.
- Provides people on low incomes with free internet access through public computers and with the skills to engage in our increasingly digital society.
- Strengthens Australia’s research infrastructure, giving academics and researchers access to essential data.
You can use our free downloadable resources (below) and you can read our ALIA Member sourced agenda.
We are also partnering with other organisations with similar objectives to our own.
With our fellow GLAM Peak members, we have created a GLAM election agenda which puts exemption of national cultural institutions from the efficiency dividend front and centre.
