Tell us how you’ve implemented ebooks and ereaders in your library and you could win:

  • E2 Experts Award:
    • Up to $1750 to use towards presenting a paper at an appropriate conference or professional development event. This is a great opportunity to showcase how your library and NZ has attacked the ebook/ereader beast.
  • Best Implementation Idea: 
    • First place: $500
    • Second place: $300
    • Third place: $200

Note: this competition is only open to New Zealand public library staff.

Nominations need to be submitted by 5pm Friday 14 September 2012 to Helen Hennessey, APLM Executive Director. Applications will be considered by a panel with winners announced at LIANZA Conference in Palmerston North. The awards panel is Ian Littleworth (APLM chair), Sally Pewhairangi (Finding Heroes) and Paul Nielsen (APLM Project Sponsor).

Earlier this year the Association of Public Library Managers (APLM) partnered with Sally Pewhairangi of Finding Heroes in the Travel Light This Summer With Library Ebooks tour and the follow-up E2 Experts Train the Trainer sessions. These popular training sessions armed public library staff with the expertise to on-train colleagues and deal with the increasing volume of technical problem-solving for library customers.

Sally visited eleven locations and facilitated 23 workshops with a total of 247 staff from 37 libraries attending the training sessions. The most valuable aspect of training was the hands-on use of different devices with confidence in using e-readers increased by 45% for E2 Experts graduates.

For further information email Helen Hennessey, APLM Executive Director.
