Presented by Judy Brooker (Director of Learning, ALIA) at the Research Support Community Day 2018.
The Australian Library and Information Association (ALIA) under the direction of our constitution has a key responsibility:
“To ensure the high standard of personnel engaged in information provision and foster their professional interests and aspirations”.
From this premise ALIA has developed a range of supporting mechanisms. A commitment to ongoing learning and research is fundamental to the fulfilment of this responsibility.
The ALIA PD Scheme provides a support framework for LIS professionals and within that framework is the opportunity to concentrate your post qualification learning using the ALIA Specialisations. The existing ‘Academic /Research Specialisation’ is most suited to this role and the in development ‘LIS Practitioner Research Specialisation’ will strengthen this area. This presentation discusses how the ALIA PD Scheme Specialisations works and how ALIA supports Research.
