Non-Indigenous Librarians and Indigenous Knowledge in Aotearoa New Zealand

CILIP International Library & Information Group (ILIG) extends a warm welcome to our next Informal on Wednesday, 11th September- 6:00pm to 7:45pm at CILIP HQ, 7 Ridgmount Street, London WC1E 7AE
 
Attendance is FREE but we kindly request that you book in advance for catering purposes (light nibbles/wine).
Kathryn Oxborrow (pictured above) is a PhD student at Victoria University of Wellington, Aotearoa New Zealand. She has been investigating how non-Māori librarians in Aotearoa New Zealand learn about and engage with Māori knowledge, talking with 25 librarians about their journeys. Kathryn will share what she has learned about the processes that librarians go through in learning about indigenous knowledge and applying it to their contexts. She will also talk about the cultural context of her study and consider some of the possible applications for UK librarians.  

ILIG Informals are not lectures; they are informal, early evening social gatherings followed by a short talk on a theme of international interest plus plenty of time for questions and networking. They are open to all and absolutely free.  Light refreshments are served which is why we ask you to let ILIG know you are coming by booking.
