Discussion Document: Professional Future For The New Zealand Library And Information Profession

The National Council of the Library & Information Association of New Zealand Aotearoa (LIANZA) established the Taskforce on Professional Registration in December 2004. Its brief was to investigate the registration of New Zealand librarians and other information professionals and the associated accreditation of their training and professional practice; and make recommendations suitable for the New Zealand environment. The key recommendations proposed are:

  1. The establishment of a registration scheme for librarians and other information professionals.

  2. The establishment of a continuing professional development framework for registered members.

  3. That transitional arrangements are put in place.

  4. The articulation of the Body of Knowledge of the Library and Information Profession.
