Thank you. Phase 2 consultation is now closed.

Thank you to those who contributed to the second stage of consultation. The team is busy analysing the data. Stay tuned for further information.

You can read the Consultation Paper responses and submissions that we have been granted permission to publish.

Why are we consulting?

We are seeking your input into the final design of the Professional Pathways project before implementation later in 2023. Specifically we are seeking input on the proposed draft framework and its uses, systems for recognition and continued professional development (CPD) contained in the Phase 2 Consultation Paper. This paper has been informed by the Phase 1 consultation, the results of which can be read in the Phase One Consultations: Research Report.

What are we trying to achieve?

We are trying to put in place the frameworks and structures necessary to support a diverse, valued and supported library and information services (LIS) workforce with the skills, knowledge and ethics needed to deliver quality library and information services that anticipate and meet the needs of the population into the future.

How can you provide feedback?

  • whether you are making the submission as an individual on behalf of an organisation
  • whether you are happy for your submission to be published
  • if you are happy for it to be published, whether you wish to be anonymous.

If you cannot provide a written submission please email or call the ALIA Office on 02 6215 8222 so we can find an alternative way of receiving your feedback.

How will the feedback be used?

The results of the consultation will inform the Professional Pathways Advisory Board’s final recommendation to the ALIA Board. The ALIA Board will decide on the final actions to be taken to implement the recommendations. We anticipate the results of this consultation will be available in the third quarter of 2023.
