Recognition of Qualifications for Learning Providers

Recognition of qualifications provides a number of benefits for learning providers. It establishes a link between curriculum and the Body of Knowledge for library and information professionals as recognised by LIANZA. This results in graduates being eligible to apply for Professional Registration with LIANZA. It also provides international benchmarking and recognition of professional library qualifications for New Zealanders wishing to work overseas.

Recognition process

All degree programmes relating to library, information and knowledge management will have to demonstrate their relationship to the LIANZA Body of Knowledge Professional Knowledge (BoK) in order to be recognised.  All successful programmes will be recognised for five years.

The procedure for applying for an initial Recognition of Qualification begins with contacting the LIANZA Office, and a renewal of a Recognition of Qualifications is outlined in the document attached.
