In this issue of Library Life, alongside our special anniversary feature, we caught up with Justin Hoenke to find out about the newly opened Waitohi Community Hub in Johnsonville, Wellington. We also spoke with Murdoch Riley of Viking Records to hear more about his partnership with the National Library digitising the Viking Records master tapes.
Sue Sutherland doesn’t pull any punches as she looks back at some of the pivotal moments in LIANZA's history and sets out some of the challenges we face for the future. We talk with Vicki McDonald, State Library of Queensland’s State Librarian about the NEXT Library Satellite programme and the Australian bush fires.
We are thrilled to kick off our first We Are LIANZA column with Jane Hill.
In this new column we talk to members from all walks of life, and stages of their careers, to see who and what makes up LIANZA. We also meet this month's Career Pathways and Student Focus interviewees.
The theme of this issue is Looking Back, Looking Forward, please join us as we do just that!
You may not know that the LIANZA office is very small, there are only three of us working with our amazing team of volunteers. Of course, LIANZA members are LIANZA – they are the driving force behind what LIANZA accomplishes. We are always happy to hear from readers, so let us know if you have any feedback, suggestions or news to share.
