Knowledge Nation

Building one knowledge network for New Zealand

The National Library of New Zealand invites you to a panel discussion on the relationship between innovation and sharing knowledge. This session explores the concept of “one big library” as an interface across a multitude of public and school library systems and the benefits we stand to gain as a nation if we can provide better access to publicly held collections and research.
Nathan Torkington facilitates a discussion with three outstanding speakers to tackle the thorny issues of copyright, moral rights, access fees, open data and internet provision and to consider how we might create one knowledge network for New Zealand.
  • Shaun Hendy - Professor, Faculty of Science – University of Auckland
  • Jane Cowell - Acting CEO and State Librarian – State Library of Queensland
  • Paula Browning -  Chair – WeCreate and Chief Executive – Copyright Licensing New Zealand
Please join us for the final session in this three-part series on New Zealand knowledge and identity, hosted by the National Library.
Tuesday 7 June 2016, 5.30 – 7.30pm
National Library of New Zealand,
