Library Chat

Episode 7 - Laurinda Thomas - LIANZA, Professional Associations, Archives

May 12, 2013

This time we chat with Laurinda Thomas.  Laurinda is the President Elect of the Library and Information Association of New Zealand Aotearoa (LIANZA) and Public Sector Digital Continuity Manager at Department of Internal Affairs.  Having met Laurinda at NDF and chatted on Twitter I knew that as LIANZA President Elect she would be a great person to talk with about the challenges for LIANZA, why professional associations matter and about the archive career path for librarians.

This interview was recorded some weeks ago before I knew that I was to be the next LIANZA President Elect and before Laurinda gave such an impressive interview on breakfast television about libraries and why the are still relevant to our society.
