APLIC 2018 will be an opportunity to join delegates from Australia, New Zealand, Singapore and beyond as we connect over common interests, explore future trends and learn from the experiences of libraries engaged in a diverse range of cultural contexts. Inspired by motifs and imagery commonly associated with Australia, New Zealand and Singapore, the theme challenges delegates to:

ROAR: make some noise!
Advocate for our communities, industries and ourselves. Promote and demonstrate the value of what we do.

LEAP: one small step, one giant leap
Surge forward and build momentum. What are the innovations and connections in technology, service delivery and content that are shaping our services, environments and work?

DARE: taking chances
Share the stories of revolution or evolution, success or failure, in your library, industry, country or career? What risks are we taking in our organisations and work lives?

Abstracts must be submitted by 6 November 2017. Visit the website to download abstract criteria, and for more details about the conference
