Library Chat

Episode 10 - Robert Eruera - Manatunga, Maori Librarianship, Guardianship

September 16, 2013

This time we chat with Robert Eruera, Senior Librarian Pou Arahi Taonga at Auckland Libraries and the lead curator of the Manatunga exhibition which runs at Auckland Libraries until Oct 20th.

We talk about why the Manatunga exhibition is so significant and some of the challenges in mounting such an exhibition.  Also, about the role of Pou Arahi Taonga and the significance of positions such as Robert's in librarianship.  Lastly we talk about the concept of guardianship and the future of roles like Robert's and ensuring there are many more people ready to step into this type or work.
