ALLA (ACT) Inc. began its life in July 1980 with the first meeting of the ACT Law Librarians' Resources mutual interest, such as serials and inter-library loans. By 1985 the group had grown and changed its name to the ACT Law Librarians' Group. In 2002, the group incorporated under the Associations Incorporation Act (ACT) 1991. At the 2007 Annual General Meeting the group voted unanimously to change its name to Australian Law Librarians' Association (Australian Capital Territory) Inc.
Today, ALLA (ACT) is part of the national Australian Law Librarians' Association. The ACT Division has a membership of approximately 40, based in court libraries, Federal and Territory government departments and agencies, universities, private law firms and other institutions. We offer our members continuing professional development activities, presentations on topics of interest, forums for informal discussion and networking. We also to promote the interests of law libraries and collections, especially those in the ACT.
