ALLA 2014


The Australian Law Librarians' Association Conference for 2014 was held in Adelaide, South Australia, from Wednesday 10 September to Friday 12 September at the Adelaide Convention Centre.

An exciting variety of speakers, workshops, library tours, panel discussions and trade exhibitions made this an event not to miss.

Conference theme

The theme of the conference was C.A.S.E. : Collaborate - Advocate - Strategise - Educate

This theme focuses on four key foundation principles for law librarians in the delivery of legal information services. It will examine how law librarians can collaborate in a dynamic and responsive way to the expectations and needs of our industry and its clients. Through rigorous formulation and implementation of strategy, by advocating its talent and value to its stakeholders and by delivering timely and relevant education to its members, we use these principles to ‘make the case’ for law librarianship.

Collaborate - in the workplace, amongst peers, with industry partners, between institutions

Advocate - for our profession, for access to information, for access to justice

Strategise - by prioritising and refocusing, by effective engagement with clients, by embracing change

Educate - ourselves, our clients, our organisations, students and new graduates
