This support is made possible by LIANZA-held funds that were intended to support the New Zealand Aotearoa hosting of the IFLA World Library and Information Congress (WLIC) in 2022. This event was cancelled and the fund is now being used to encourage participation in the activities of LIANZA and to support New Zealand and Pasifika librarians. In 2021 this fund has been used to support attendance at the recent IFLA WLIC 2021 online and is also offered to support participation in the LIANZA 2021 Conference online.
