The LIANZA Professional Registration scheme is supported by Te Rōpū Whakahau.  This is one of the most significant things you can do when starting your career in the important and innovative area of libraries and information. It is the ideal way to increase your professional status and show your potential employer you are a competent and ethical librarian.
You are also showing dedication and commitment to both the profession and your personal growth, and your qualifications are more likely to be recognised overseas. For those fresh out of tertiary education this is the perfect way to be eased into the profession and your mentor will assist you in gaining a sound basis for your future career.
