As indicated last week the health and safety of our members is the top priority of the NZLLA Nat Exec.
Due to the uncertainty around Covid-19 we have made the difficult decision to cancel the Privacy Commission lunchtime session scheduled for Tuesday 24th March.
We are hoping to reschedule this session later in the year when things are a more certain.
There is a substantial amount of information in the media around Covid-19. We recognize that individual organizations will have their own policies in place in response to COVID-19, and members will need to be guided by their own organizations in response to this uncertain time. Specific information for NZ Libraries is being led by LIANZA and can be found here: https://lianza.org.nz/covid-19-coronavirus-new-zealand-libraries/
In addition a wider GLAM initiative is tracking closures,cancellations and reduced services across Aotearoa. You may wish to add your libraries information to this page https://www.ndf.org.nz/covid19-and-nz-glams
Please get in touch via firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.

26 Mar 2019
The New Zealand Law Librarians’ Conference Committee is pleased to announce a call for abstracts for the NZLLA Conference 2019 which will be held in Christchurch from Thursday 29th to Friday 30th August 2019.
Our theme for 2019 is Preparing for a new professional landscape and we welcome abstract submissions for presentations of either 30 or 45 minutes duration. We will also be running 10-15 minute lightning sessions for colleagues who wish to share experiences, projects, or new innovations. So if you feel nervous about committing to a longer session, this may be for you.
Abstracts should be no more than 250 words in length and should outline the main idea you wish to present. Please indicate the format of your presentation (e.g. presentation 30/45 minutes or a 10-15 minute lightning session).
Please send your submissions to Theresa Buller by Monday 8 April 2019.
Successful applicants will be contacted by mid May.
We look forward to hearing from you!
