TELRES Banner (Updated)

It is our pleasure to invite you to a two-day symposium, 4-5 February 2021 at the National Library in Wellington, organised by LIANZA’s Research (RES) and Tertiary Libraries (TEL) special interest groups.

The recordings of the LIANZA Tertiary and Research Symposium keynote addresses from Dr Siouxsie Wiles, Toby Morris and Dr Lisa Emerson are now available on the LIANZA YouTube channel along with the opening address by National Librarian, Rachel Esson. We will keep you posted when the PowerPoints from other presenters become available on the LIANZA website.


As most of our professional decisions are underpinned by evidence gathered through some form of research, this symposium will be of strong interest to information workers across all sectors, tertiary, school, special, government, health, public and more.  

It will also provide the opportunity to rekindle  connections with colleagues and friends across the library and wider information sectors. 

All are welcome - new graduates, early career and more experienced professionals alike.

We’re still sticking with our decision to host the symposium face to face in Wellington but of course should alert levels change we will make arrangements to move the symposium online.


Our call for presentations closed on Monday 9th November.

If you have any questions about your presentation, please see the contact list below. Please refer to our Presenting tips & tricks folder for help with your abstract and presentation.
