Programming Specialists, Turanga (Central Library)

As a Programming Specialist you will develop and deliver learning activities for a wide cross-section of the community.

I began the year by making the decision to resign from my role as a lecturer in the information and library studies team at the Open Polytechnic to take up a volunteer role on the other side of the world with the St. Lucia Public Library. This seemed like a crazy decision to a lot of people (my mother in particular), but after a period of existential crisis, a growing disenchantment with academia, and more generalised sense of professional frustration, I thought a change of scenery and role was what I needed to help me rekindle my love for librarianship.

Claire Stent - More Ways Librarians Can Make A Difference

Claire Stent reports on a project to digitise the New Zealand Official Yearbooks.

Statistics New Zealand has just launched a web version of the New Zealand Official Yearbooks from 1893-2008, with 2010 being added soon to complete the set. I think my library background helped focus the project on the requirements of the end user and therefore a more useful product.
