National Library of New Zealand’s strategic direction: submission

Email from the National Library

Consultation closes in two weeks!

Don’t forget to have your say on the National Library of New Zealand’s strategic directions before 31 August.

Kia ora t?tou

You may recall that I wrote to you about a month ago to invite you to make submissions on the National Library’s draft strategic directions to 2030. The submission period closes on 31 August 2016 and I am really interested to know your thoughts on our ‘Positioning for the future’ consultation document.

The document can be viewed by visiting and I encourage you to make a submission through the same website. If you would like to provide feedback via email please send it to

Our aspiration is to ensure that New Zealanders everywhere have easy access to knowledge, to engage everyone in reading for pleasure, and to contribute to a prosperous New Zealand that values words as part of our heritage. This is bigger than any one institution so we are looking to uncover areas of common strategic interest and to identify strong partnership opportunities for the future.

The findings from the consultation will feed into a final strategy towards the end of this year and form the basis for an action plan for implementation from 2017 onwards. Your contribution and collaboration could help shape the future direction of the National Library and keep our proposed initiatives aligned with your priorities.

If you have any questions about the consultation, again please email
