Our members are the foundation of our organisation and we love to celebrate their many achievements and help them make significant contributions to the Library and Information profession in Aotearoa New Zealand.
We support our members by giving out annual awards such as:
Student Awards which recognise individuals who are excelling in their studies at Victoria University and the Open Polytechnic.
Professional Awards which include both Associate and Fellowship Awards, and Awards of Merit.
- Scholarships which provide opportunities for LIS professionals to undertake funded travel or research trips.
LIANZA works with Victoria University of Wellington (VUW) and the Open Polytechnic of New Zealand to reward the best and brightest. Our student prizes are awarded annually for excellence in library and information management studies.
