LIANZA TelSig Journal Discussion group would not go far without the support from many of our amazing colleagues. Below is the roster for the rest of this year. It would be great to get some new people signing up.
The roster includes links of BOK clusters as well as expected dates for articles to be send.
This is not an arduous task, if we all take a turn! For those of you who struggle to find an activity for this BoK in your revalidation journal, this might be the perfect opportunity!

- Do you think the themes from the discussion in Roach-Freiman and Winberry’s article apply to us in NZ and the tertiary library sector?
- Are the challenges for early career librarians to get involved in their professional organizations from the article relevant to us?
- With more professional staff joining in tertiary libraries, e.g. public relations, marketing, information technology, and more, what’s the attraction to join a library association such as LIANZA?
