Every year around this time, members of Te Rōpū Whakahau – Māori in Libraries and Information Management, gather together for the TRW equivalent of LIANZA Conference.  This hui usually takes place on a marae, lasts for 3 to 4 days, and is an opportunity for Māori librarians to come together, share ideas, take part in presentations and workshops and network.  The hui-ā-tau (literally “yearly hui”) also features the TRW AGM, an awards ceremony, and waiata, waiata, waiata.

This year we in Ōtautahi had the honour of hosting Māori librarians from around the country at historic Ōnuku Marae, Akaroa.  The hui ran from Wednesday 17 March to Saturday 20 March and over the next few days I’ll be putting up posts about interesting kōrero that formed part of the TRW 2010 programme.
