The beautiful State Library of Queensland, Australia was the site for 12th Australian Library History Forum on July 7-8 2016. The forum has been held intermittently since the first in 1984 was hosted by the School of Librarianship at Monash University in Melbourne, Australia. The forums were held again in 2007 after a 10 year hiatus. The themes and locations of all forums are listed below with links to any subsequent publications. Papers from previous forums have appeared variously as proceedings, special journal issues and books.
Presentations from the 12th ALH forum have been made available via the Australian Library History Forum website. The photographs from the event are available on Flickr and the twitter activity of the forum has also been captured and is available via Storify.
