Jane will feature local collections inscribed on the Memory of the World Register to give a sense of the rich and varied collections on the register and outline the process for adding to this record of our unique documentary heritage taonga. 

Colleagues from the University of Auckland Library and the Auckland War Memorial Museum will discuss their recent successful nominations for Robin Hyde and Olaf Petersen.
