A little over a year ago, Jo and I visited Auckland on a study visit for our QPLA research scholarship project into readers’ advisory practice in public libraries. The images above represent some of the best days of  a very productive and enjoyable week. We blogged about Auckland and our research at projectreadja. In an intensive exploration through readers services over two years we learned a lot by doing a lot. Our inaugural research scholarship culminated in submission of an extensive report and a conference presentation at the Gold Coast.
Tēnā rāwā atu koe to Paul Brown for his in-depth tour of nine Auckland libraries and his ongoing challenge to achieve more in readers’ advisory practice. Aroha nui to Sally Pewhairangi of Finding Heroes for collaboration and inspiration.
