Keynote Address LIANZA 2010: Chris Szekely

Adressing the LIANZA conference in 2010 this is a personal reflection on the changing library and information needs of Maori. In the 1990's, the Te Ara Tika Project identified the key issues relating to Maori use and non-use of libraries. Chris considers how much progress has been made in addressing these issues, and the extent to which Maori are redefining their needs and expectations.

Michelle Anderson: The Power of Choice - Problems with a Female Dominated Profession

Michelle Anderson presents her paper to the 2011 LIANZA conference on the problems experienced by a predominantly female profession.

Librarianship has traditionally been a female dominated profession. What has changed in the last 30 or so years has been the pattern of work that female librarians have engaged in. Changes in social attitudes, legislation and better childcare options have given women the power of choice – the ability to choose whether to combine work with motherhood, an option not available a number of years ago.
