This issue of the IATUL (International Association of Technological University Libraries) Proceedings focuses on developments in Australian libraries. The first article, "University Librarianship in Australia" (D. H. Borchardt), reviews the growth of librarianship in Australia and examines some current issues. "Information Retrieval in Australia" (P. Judge) reviews the development of computerized information retrieval. "The Australian Bibliographic Network--ABN--History and Current Developments" (Judith A. D. Baskin) traces the history and current state of ABN. Three articles describe current issues in different types of libraries: "Current Issues in Australian Parliamentary Library Services" (R. L. Cope); "Government Special Libraries in Australia" (Heather Howard); and"Non-Government Special Libraries in Australia" (Joyce Korn). The final paper, "Collecting User Education Materials in Australia: The Role of USER (User Education Resources)" (Megan Lilly) provides an account of library cooperation in user education throughout Australia facilitated by the USER clearinghouse.
