The ARLIS/ANZ (Arts Libraries Society/Australia and New Zealand Chapter) Conference – He Raranga Toi is taking place at the Auckland Art Gallery from 15 to 17 October 2014. This conference follows directly on from the LIANZA 2014 event. Online registrations can be made at the conference section of the ARLIS/ANZ website.
New Zealand librarians are now invited to apply for the ARLIS/ANZ NZ Chapter Travel Fund which makes an annual grant to assist attendance at an ARLIS/ANZ meeting. Applicants must be personal or institutional members of ARLIS/ANZ of twelve months' standing and resident in New Zealand.
The decisions of the ARLIS/ANZ NZ Chapter Committee shall be final and no correspondence regarding them shall be entered into. In making an award to attend an ARLIS/ANZ conference, preference may be given to a member who has not had the opportunity to attend on a previous occasion. Up to a total of NZ$500 may be awarded on an annual basis (subject to availability) either in one lump sum or as several smaller amounts.
Applicants should submit an application that includes the following information: Name, contact details, current role and a brief resume giving details about professional activities, particularly in ARLIS/ANZ and the length of membership with ARLIS/ANZ. Also a short summary of purpose for which an award is sought with details of other funding received or applied for is welcomed. Applications for the ARLIS/ANZ Travel fund close on Thursday 18 September 2014 at 5pm.
We plan to hold an AGM for New Zealand members on Thursday 16 October at 1pm at Auckland Art Gallery. We hope you can attend this event or please send any material to Fran that you wish to be raised at this AGM if you are unable to attend.
