As a means of maintaining momentum after the formal Culturally Safe Libraries Program, NSLA members in Australia agreed to run an Indigenous cultural capability audit for five years from 2021.
An annual summary of NSLA's work, membership and financial status, beginning in 2022: the year NSLA incorporated as an association.
NSLA's response to the ALIA Professional Pathways Consultation Paper supports the program's overall intent and direction, including the introduction of alternative pathways to the library profession in addition to the continuation of formal LIS courses.
As custodians of a large volume of collection materials relating to and created by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, languages and cultures, NSLA’s Australian member libraries acknowledge our collective, individual and moral responsibilities to ensure that management and access is culturally informed and respectful. NSLA libraries support the creation of First Nations-led stand-alone legislation to protect ICIP and IK.
NSLA libraries are committed to supporting the Tandanya Adelaide Declaration’s themes: knowledge authorities, property and ownership, recognition and identity, research and access, and self-determination.
