APLA-ALIA Standards and Guidelines for Australian Public Libraries, December 2020

In August 2020 the Australian Library and Information Association (ALIA) on behalf of the Australian Public Library Alliance (APLA) engaged I & J Management Services Pty. Ltd. to update the 2016 Guidelines, Standards and Outcome Measures for Australian Public Libraries. The purpose of the project was to establish national standards and guidelines for public libraries that reflect the evolving role of contemporary public libraries and to better recognise the different circumstances in the eight states and territories, allowing for appropriate local interpretation.

Beyond a quality service: strengthening the social fabric. Standards and guidelines for Australian public libraries 1st ed.

This document is an evidence-based guide for the development of public library services in Australia. It uses the National and State Libraries Australasia (NSLA) annual collation of state and territory statistics as its evidence base, and builds on the earlier work on standards and guidelines carried out by the State Libraries of New South Wales and Queensland.

Submission in response to the Inquiry into access to Australian Standards adopted in delegated legislation by the Joint Standing Committee on Delegated Legislation, Legislative Council of Western Australia
