REMINDER: You still have time to submit your abstract. If you're thinking about
presenting, but not quite sure, talk to your SLANZA Regional Representative or
Chairperson, or email me j.williams at rangiruru.school.nz 
The Conference Committee invites abstract submissions for the SLANZA Conference
2015, From the Ground Up: Growing Libraries for the Future, to be held in
Christchurch, 28-30 September 2015
Perhaps you've never thought of presenting a paper at a Conference before.
Consider it now. Your colleagues would like to hear from you. (And if you're in
the primary sector, even better.  They want to know about information literacy
before kids hit secondary school.)
Enquiries can be sent to Mandy Train, mandy at conference.co.nz phone: 03 353 2829
Or Johnann Williams, j.williams at rangiruru.school.nz phone 03 983 3719
