Help librarians in the Asia-Pacific and benefit the entire community

We have great libraries in Australia, and we want to share our expertise and good fortune with library professionals from the emerging areas in the Asia-Pacific region. Please help us raise funds for at least one library person to attend Asia-Pacific Library and Information Conference (APLIC) next year. We want to give someone the opportunity to hear about the amazing work libraries in Asia-Pacific region are doing so they can better assist  their communities back home. They will join 800 library and information professionals at the Gold Coast Convention & Exhibition Centre from 30 July – 2 August 2018.

The Australian Library and Information Association (ALIA) is willing to provide free conference registration (worth nearly $2,000) for up to 10 participants from  emerging nations, but this still leaves a gap of approximately $3,000 per person for flights, accommodation and meals. Your donation will help provide a library colleague with a rewarding professional experience. They will learn how to help children  read, students find information  and seniors  become digitally literate. You will be making a real difference to the lives of many people who don’t have the advantages we do in Australia.
