Special libraries and COVID-19 – Lessons learned and future directions


ALIA’s Special Libraries Working Group and AGLIN (the Australian Government Library Information Network) are keen to focus on turning what special libraries have learned from COVID-19 to our advantage and leveraging those learnings to advocate for libraries.

Special library guest speakers David Church and Rolf Schafer will share their lessons and learnings from COVID-19, then participate in a lively Q&A session hosted by ALIA CEO Sue McKerracher.

Join us for this free virtual event on 3 December 2020, 2:00pm – 3:30pm AEDT

We look forward to your questions and discussion.
