The ALIA National Library & Information Technician Symposium was held at the Australian Catholic University North Sydney from Wednesday 27 September 2017 to Friday 29 September 2017. Library technicians came from around Australia to meet in Sydney. The theme was Bridge the Gap. The symposium provided an opportunity for library technicians to meet in the formal setting of a structured program, to hear prominent members of the profession, as well as their peers, speak and debate contemporary issues relating to the profession, professionalism and library work in general.
In addition, there were opportunities for networking including the tours, symposium dinner, opening and closing events and daily breaks. There were also amazing opportunities for networking with local, interstate and international library colleagues.
