Our Section recently held a hugely successful mid-year meeting in Brisbane, Australia.  In addition to our regular business meetings, the section also visited a number of fantastic libraries including the State Library of Queensland (SLQ), Brisbane City Libraries, QUT, Griffith University and the Gold Coast Libraries. Our mid-year concluded with our participation in the exciting ALIA 2019 Library Design Awards conference.  The conference included a panel discussion invovling our standing committee members and an individual paper by Section Secretary Traci Lesneski,  For full details of the awards and the winners see here.  Special thanks to our Section Committee member Janine Schmidt and to  Vicki McDonald, CEO and State Librarian SLQ and IFLA Governing Board member.
