Newsletters and Lianza

The Office works to develop and maintain relationships with libraries around New Zealand in order to ensure the classification information needs of librarians are being met. In order to do this, the Information Unit regularly corresponds with libraries and distributes information in various ways.


Every 2 months the Office sends out a newsletter to libraries via email. This newsletter highlights current news and issues from the Office relevant to libraries. Recent newsletters have covered the new label posters produced by the Office, box sets of DVDs and labelling of children's books accompanied by DVDs. If you would like to receive this newsletter contact the Information Unit.

Since 2005 the Office has attended the annual Library and Information Association of New Zealand Aotearoa conference. Members of the Information Unit run a stand offering information relevant to librarians, answer questions, and give advice about censorship and classification issues.

The 2009 LIANZA conference at the Christchurch Convention Centre in October was a great success for the Office and we look forward to attending future events. The following information sheets were specifically created for the latest conference and are now available to download as PDFs:

Key Information for Librarians (pdf v9.0, 218 kb)
Graphic Novels Information Sheet (pdf v9.0, 217 kb)

You can also download our flowchart about Labelling restricted books, comics, graphic novels and magazines. (PDF, v9.0, 432kb)
