Eating a palm tree: the history of an ALIA special interest group

ALIA Asia Pacific Special Interest Group (ALIA APSIG) is a national group that aims to lead efforts in identifying new sources of support for the development between information professionals in the region, through two-way co-operation. It also aims to provide a forum for members to discuss regional professional issues and to communicate these to the appropriate forum; hosts public talks relating to relevant issues; and produce a membership newsletter three times per year.

ALIA guidelines for special libraries experiencing service reviews

Every special library is likely to experience the review process at some point, often triggered by changes in the parent organisation. It is important to remember that while a review is challenging, it is also an opportunity to reinforce messages about the role and value of the library and information service. The review process can result in the reduction of some library and information services, but others find themselves coming out of the process in an even stronger position.
