So, you’re heading to the Gold Coast to attend the 2018 Asia-Pacific Library and Information Conference and you want to visit some GLAM institutions while you’re here. Conference tours are always popular and you can visit the selection of APLIC library tours here but if you’re into more of a DIY approach to touring, or the formal tours are booked out, then you will find lots of inspiration below.
If you’re interested in visiting school libraries then I suggest getting in touch with the Queensland School Library Association for suitable locations and contacts.
There are also a variety community museums and local history groups and you can find more info here.
