John Sullivan: New Zealand Heritage - Any Time, Any Place - Online

John Sullivan presents his paper to the 2011 LIANZA conference concerning the move towards digital access in libraries.

The Alexander Turnbull Library (ATL) is New Zealand’s premier heritage library.

Claire Stent - Workshop: Creating Resources For Communities: An Interactive Workshop

“Good libraries are community-minded, technologically aware, devoted to increasing access to information, and interested in preserving the local cultural heritage” (Making stories: libraries and community publishing (2012)) Libraries have a continuing role to play in connecting people to the stories and statistics of their communities. This is not just about providing access to books and websites. It is about creating our own resources. This workshop will enable participants to use some of the tools covered in last year’s LIANZA 2011 paper - Are we there yet?

Hemi Rukuwai Jury - Workshop: “Mā Wai Rā E Taurima Te Marae I Waho Nei?” “Who Will Tend The Marae?”

The tūrangawaewae of many whānau, hapū and iwi are based around their marae. With the advancement of time, Māori are now asking "who is there to tend the marae?‟ Much Māori historical information is held within information institutions around the world. Whānau, hapū and iwi are going through processes to maintain, sustain and transform marae into repositories for the future. The transformation of these marae into whare taonga provides institutions with the opportunity to gain new and evolving information.

Claire Stent - Lightning: XML: The Technology Behind The Digital Yearbook Collection

The decision to code the New Zealand Official Yearbooks in XML transformed the print books into an online tool with searchability down to table level, and tables which could be easily copied. The commentary, data and pictures previously locked in over 100 print books is now accessible to anyone with online access. Why did we choose XML as our transformation tool? What is XML anyway? Why do IT people keep recommending it as an option for coding resources? This presentation is a beginner’s guide to XML, and does not require any technical knowledge.
