Ready for some good old-fashioned winter fun? Join SALIN for a friendly evening of board games, and test your wits against your fellow information professionals.
We will provide games, but we welcome anyone who would like to bring and share their own favourite games. You can play just for fun, or join our tournament. There will be snacks to keep your energy up, or bring your own food and drink (no alcohol).
When: Thursday 2nd August, 6-8pm
Where: Box Factory Community Centre (Hurtle Room), 59 Regent St, Adelaide

- 1st place: Smells like quiz spirit
We’ve travelled throughout history together — getting physical in the ’80s, then down and dirty in the ’30s — but now you’d better dig out your day-glo, ’cause this year is going to be totally rad!
SALIN and ALIA SA invite you once again to our annual South Australian library community quiz night, to be held on Friday 18th May in the Walkerville Town Hall (66 Walkerville Tce, Gilberton). Doors will open from 6:30pm for a 7pm start.
The Flinders University Library Special Collections include some of the rarest and most intriguing collections held in South Australian libraries. Everything from science fiction to beer coasters, from South Australian greats to the inner workings of the Australian sex industry is documented here.
SALIN invites you to join us on a tour behind the scenes of these collections, learning about their history, how they are preserved and made accessible for researchers now and into the future.
