|Breakthroughs rely on the accessibility of knowledge.|
In this session, we will hear from a major library network in our region. How they are expanding their reach, and empowering citizens globally through smarter connections to the knowledge they manage.
Beyond offering a catalog where library users can search and find items from across New Zealand, Te Puna supports national cataloging and inter-lending activity under the direction of the New Zealand National Library. Te Puna offers a means for the entire population to borrow or access any item from any participating library in New Zealand. It is an example of a truly national collaborative library approach, with 92% of libraries participating. We will hear from Bill Macnaught on the work of Te Puna.
Then, looking ahead, the National Library has recently announced its digital strategy 2030, where the aim is to create cultural and economic value for New Zealanders through leadership and collaboration. By removing barriers to knowledge, they wish to ensure New Zealanders have the skills to create and preserve knowledge for future generations, what can we learn from this exciting new chapter in New Zealand’s development of library service?
Finally, we will hear from OCLC. Libraries have collaborated for decades to create shared catalogs that could support wider access to knowledge in efficient ways. Times have changed and the technology has moved on. The costs of maintaining proprietary software has risen and the arrival of cloud-based technology has created an opportunity to work in a distributed network environment where repetitious workflows for data sharing can be removed. This session will cover how OCLC’s expertise in building bibliographic infrastructure can help support the evolving needs of libraries around the world.
