The Library and Information Association of New Zealand (LIANZA) invites you to our annual conference to be held in Hamilton, 20 - 23 October 2013.
Our theme, Wai-Ora, Wai-Mâori, Waikato, references the most significant landmark of our region, the Waikato River. Rivers are powerful forces, relentless and enduring, giving and sustaining life. Libraries are also powerful forces, and like rivers, they must be respected, understood and well-managed in order to continue to nourish and support their communities. So please join us to consider the role and future of our libraries and the kaitiakitanga (guardianship and management) needed to ensure that libraries, and the benefits they bring, are strong and enduring.
Keynote speakers will include Eli Neiburger, a libraries futurist best known for his “Libraries are Screwed” seminars about libraries in the digital age, and Dr Michael Stephens, founder of www.tametheweb.com
Registrations will open in July.
