While developing eSmart Libraries, we worked closely with representatives from the library sector to inform the pilot’s direction and best practice guidance.
We established consultative groups with various stakeholders, strategic and operational, to make sure we gained feedback and insight to achieve a fit-for-purpose framework and will continue to do so.
Jan Richards, Chair of the Australian Library and Information Association Public Library Advisory Committee, said:
We are really supportive of this initiative. It fits so well with libraries being essential community resources – physical and online spaces for people to share knowledge and ideas.
"The internet has opened so many new doors for library professionals to help library users discover inspiration and information at their fingertips," said Jan Richards.
