INCITE

As with the current May/June issue of?INCITE, the July/August issue will be published as an open access digital-only issue, freely available to download from the ALIA website from 1 July 2020.

This is for the following reasons:
·???????During the COVID-19 pandemic, we want to minimise the risk of spread by contact with physical items. Distributing?INCITE?through this format removes the physical element and any associated risk with handling.
·???????Many of the mailing addresses for our Institutional Members and workplaces of Personal Members are not currently open to receive print copies through the postal service.
·???????The issue’s theme is Digital Freedoms and it fits well with an open access issue for Members and non-Members, to promote how we are supporting one another in the sector during the crisis.

We are currently seeking articles that follow the theme of Digital Freedoms, and sector news stories that share your experiences, challenges and achievements in adapting library and information services during the COVID-19 pandemic. See the ALIA website to?read our submission guidelines.

Send submissions to?incite@alia.org.au?by 19 May 2020.
