The 18th IALL Course on International Law Librarianship will be held in Melbourne, the capital of the State of Victoria, Australia from 12-16 September, 1999. The Conference Venue is the Old Treasury Building, a monument to Victorian era gold-rush architecture and design built between 1857 and 1862 to a design by the Victorian Colonial architect J.J. Clark. The theme of the Conference is Australasian Law and Librarianship, with papers covering a wide range of issues including Indigenous Law, Asian Law and Materials, Conservation of Australian Wildlife, and Australian Law and Librarianship.

In conjunction with the lecture on Conservation of Australian Wildlife, an excursion to Healesville Sanctuary has been organised, after which delegates will be able to enjoy a visit to the beautiful Yarra Valley, including dinner at the celebrated Domaine Chandon winery, prior to returning to Melbourne.

The Conference Dinner will be held in the Canberra Room of the historic Windsor Hotel, another of Melbourne's elegant Victorian era buildings and a fine example of one of Australia’s few remaining nineteenth-century grand hotels.
