Informit connects with customers at NZ libraries forum

Informit Business Development Manager, Emma Juniper at Informit’s stand at TELSIG.

Informit recently exhibited at the 2016 Tertiary Libraries Special Interest Group (TELSIG) Forum at Canterbury University, Christchurch in July.

Over 120 tertiary education library and information professionals attended the biennial event run by the Library and Information Association of New Zealand Aotearoa (LIANZA).

Keynote addresses, sessions and workshops centred around the theme of 'Creating change and shaping success,' celebrating the innovative nature of the tertiary library profession.

Informit Senior Business Development Manager, John Nuutinen, highlighted the importance of discussions with leading experts in the information management industry.

“TELSIG gave us an excellent opportunity to meet with and spend time with many of our customers, specialist and subject librarians from New Zealand in person,” he said.

“We learnt firsthand how they use our Informit products to enhance their own libraries, and discovered more about their specific information needs. 

“The organisers, LIANZA, delivered a forum which recognised the forces of change and success already so prevalent in New Zealand’s tertiary libraries.”

The forum featured discussions on pedagogical best practice, student support, leading open access initiatives and building new collaborative partnerships.

TELSIG exists to promote the interests of librarians and libraries associated with tertiary education.

They aim to foster discussion and information sharing, encourage co-operation and collaboration and provide professional development opportunities.

Informit is a leading provider of information management services to the education, government and corporate sectors.

From its head office in Melbourne, Australia, Informit works with library consortia, associations and agents to help users advance their research through access to peer reviewed and specialist journals, monographs, reports, conference papers and bibliographic indexes, collated with a focus on regional perspectives and otherwise hard-to-find research.
