When I changed careers a few years back to start work in the library, it was amazing how many people commented that it was something that they have always wanted to do.
If you are one of those people and you want to know more, here's your chance.
A free Study Expo day has been organised for anyone in the Auckland area who
* is thinking about study
* has already started study and would like some advice on which papers to take
* would like to talk to LIANZA about their professional registration scheme
Victoria University and The Open Polytechnic of New Zealand (who are the primary qualification providers for librarians in New Zealand) and LIANZA (our professional association) have stands. Auckland & Manukau will also be there to talk about their library study scheme.
Advice available on library and information qualifications, management,comms & marketing, IT, adult education, LIANZA professional registration scheme and more!
