  1. Hi,

    Is it possible to join ALISS if you are working in the Republic of Ireland?

  2. Dear Geraldine
    Thank you for your message
    Certainly it is possible for individuals working in any country to join ALISS
    We do already have some members in other European nations and in Australia,
    We feel that some topics such as information literacy and digital information are of relevance to all sectors regardless of their geographic location and we also welcome the perspective of others.
    Fees for our organisation are £15 for individual members which includes printed and online versions of our journal plus mailings and events. Our year runs October 2012/13
    I have sent you some information on recent activities which you might find useful.
    If you have any further queries or suggestions for future content do let us know
