About us

Powered by our members, LIANZA provides strong leadership, growth opportunities and a community of practice to support the provision of quality library and information services to communities throughout New Zealand.

Incorporated by an Act of Parliament in 1939, LIANZA operates as a not-for-profit supporting the library and information sector in Aotearoa New Zealand, ensuring that kiwis have access to world class innovative library services in all aspects of their lives, from school to university and from public to private sector. Pretty amazing, no?

With over 2,000 members, LIANZA truly is the voice of the library and information sector. 

Having been instrumental in laying the foundations for our current library system, we have accomplished many projects for the sector and have many more planned for the future.

"Watch this space" is an understatement. We plan to revolutionise the sector, but we can't do it without you.

You can learn about our numerous collaborative efforts in our partnerships section, and check out the training we have available. If you're a member, the library world is your oyster. Get involved today!
