Since 2007, NSLA has undertaken an extensive program of activity to maximise the benefits of working together to achieve common outcomes. NSLA libraries share strategic thinking, expertise and specialist solutions; NSLA collaboration aims to increase productivity and achieve better outcomes.

At its meeting of 21-24 November 2017 NSLA addressed its long-term business model with the approval of its Strategic Plan 2018-2020 and a re-shaping of its membership. As NSLA moves into its next phase it will do so with a focus on its Australian constituents and stakeholders. A renaming to National and State Libraries Australia recognises this focus.

The National Library of New Zealand will operate in parallel, developing its own set of priorities. The strong bilateral relationships developed to date via NSLA will continue as both sides of the Tasman come together to address regional issues. In 2018 NSLA and NLNZ will work together to identify these cross-Tasman issues.

NSLA is also pleased to advise that the 2018-2020 strategic plan will commence implementation under the newly elected chairperson Kate Torney (CEO, State Library Victoria) and deputy chair Marie Louise Ayres (Director-General, National Library of Australia).
