The mission of the Australian and New Zealand Theological Library Association Limited is to foster the study of theology and religion by enhancing the development of theological and religious libraries and librarianship (https://www.anztla.org/about-anztla). It was formed in 1986, out of the Association for Theological and Religious Studies Libraries. It consists of a Board and regional chapters (NSW, Vic, QLD, SA, WA, NZ). Its main activities are an annual conference, scholarship schemes for librarians in the South Pacific, and the publication of the ANZTLA ejournal, the Australasian Religion Index and the Australian Union List of Theological Serials. It has also produced Standards and a Style Manual for theological libraries. It has close ties with ATLA (formerly the American Theological Library Association).
The ANZTLA archives are held by Moore College under a permanent loan agreement, 2019. They were previously housed at the Bible College of South Australia and the Adelaide Theological Library.
