Troy Tuhou - Workshop: Te Whakaumutanga O Te Mata Kaipārongo: Transforming The Face Of The Information Profession

If you ask the average information professional whether their intention was to follow a career path which lead them into the information profession what is their likely response? How many of them would you guess “fell” into a position and continued from there? Were they actively recruited? I know from personal experience that I had never considered information as a valid career, not because I was averse to the information sector, but rather because I had no idea that information even existed as a career pathway.

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?

Aurelia Arona, Kirsten Smith and Sally Stanley-Boden - Workshop: He Waka Eke Noa: A Canoe Upon Which Everyone May Embark

The purpose of this paper is to share the story of the Māori Services Team at Christchurch City Libraries in relation to the creation and delivery of public library programmes to our communities in the wake of the February 2011 earthquakes. The disruption caused by the earthquakes meant we faced considerable challenges in terms of access to our physical collection material and some library venues, and necessitated adaptation of our services and new methods of delivery.

Jane Koziol-McLain, Julia Smith, Halina Kalaga and Terry Dobbs - Lightning: Enablers And Barriers To Women’s Access To Online Intimate Partner Violence Health Research In Libraries

Studies identify the Internet as an effective and powerful tool for delivering community-based health interventions. Internet-guided interventions may supplement formal health services or be the entry point for accessing services among people who feel uncomfortable talking to a healthcare professional, are dissatisfied with traditional care, or who desire anonymity. An Internet based safety decision aid for women seeking intimate partner violence (IPV) resources was recently developed.

Gail Daley - Lightning: Fiction Genre Labels That Anyone Can Understand – Turning Integration Into Innovation

In November 2010 Auckland Libraries became the largest public library in Australasia. The “borrow anywhere, return anywhere” access to the collections of the 55 libraries was so successful that floating adult fiction across legacy boundaries was escalated to help reduce the number of items travelling across the city each day. This compromised customer service as both customers and staff were confused by the different cataloguing and labelling practices of the legacy libraries of Franklin, Manukau, Auckland City, North Shore, Papakura, Rodney and Waitakere Councils.
