The Australian Library and Information Association (ALIA) recently published a couple of reports that offer insight into the state of library and information professionals in Australia:

The ALIA LIS Education Skills and Employment Trend Report 2014 provides an overview of developments within Australian LIS education over the last five years as well as employment prospects.

The ALIA LIS Research Environmental Scan report, by Michael Middleton and Christine Yates, is an environmental scan of the research currently being conducted into LIS from 2005 to 2013. The report includes research priorities of other library and information organisations, topics of research undertaken in Australia, types of research, persons/organisations undertaking research, and how research activities are funded, communicated and applied.
