Personal Membership

I did it for myself.

Becoming a member of LIANZA demonstrates your commitment to the library and information profession. Not only will you reap the benefits of professional development, access to networks, lower conference fees and more, but your confidence will grow when you feel like you belong to an organisation of professionals dedicated to the same passion. You belong here. And for the sector to survive, we need your help.

  • The opportunity to give back to the library profession

  • Continuing professional development opportunities

  • Member rates to the biennial LIANZA conference

  • Professional Registration scheme
