About this blog


ALIAWest co-ordinates and communicates strategic professional issues and organises continuing professional development activities statewide. As part of this role ALIAWest maintains a professional blog, Biblia, as a communication tool for the library profession in Western Australia.

Biblia was previously circulated on a monthly basis as a traditional, print newsletter. However, in 2007 the ALIAWest Committee decided to explore methods of making Biblia more accessible to today's generation of library workers. After considering a number of options the Committee settled on the idea of a blog.

In the process of designing this blog, care was taken to preserve the appearance and objectives of a newsletter while making best use of the functionality provided by the blog software. Therefore, the core objective of Biblia continues to be to provide news pertinent to the library profession in Western Australia. However, as a blog Biblia is now much more accessible and interactive - it is no longer a one-way communication tool! Visitors can now comment on any articles of interest which may well lead to valuable information sharing amongst library professionals. Anyone can post a comment and can remain anonymous if preferred.


If you would like to make a contribution to Biblia or have any feedback about this blog, please do not hesitate to contact one of the ALIAWest Committee members
