LAGANZ seeks input going into negotiations

Wed 14 Sep 2011 In: New Zealand Daily News

The Board of Trustees of the Lesbian and Gay Archives (LAGANZ) is to hold public meetings as it renegotiates its agreement with Alexander Turnbull Library. The agreement cover the housing of, access to and management of the collection of gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender history of New Zealand. "We think it is important to consult with Friends of LAGANZ, previous and potential donors of material to the Archives, and as many community members and groups as possible, before we re-negotiate the Agreement later this year," the Board says. "We'd like to hear what it is that our communities value in terms of access to the collections, research services and the arrangements under which the community deposits material with LAGANZ, for example." Wellington LAGANZ Consultation Meeting: Thursday 15 September, 6.30-8.30pm at the Wellington Central Library's Mezzanine Meeting Room. The meeting room is on the same level as Clark’s café, turn left at the top of the stairs from the library foyer. The meeting is between the lifts and the pay phones. Or from the underground WCC car park, take lift 3 or 4 and turn right out of the lifts. Tea, coffee and biscuits will be available. Auckland LAGANZ Consultation Meeting: Sunday 6 November, 2-4pm at the Charlotte Museum (www.charlottemuseum.lesbian.net.nz), 7a 43a Linwood Ave, Western Springs. Off St Lukes Road from MOTAT. Nearest train station: Baldwin Avenue. Afternoon tea provided. If you are interested in attending one of these meetings, it is helpful (but not essential) to RSVP by email to Gavin Hamilton at gavin.laganz@gmail.com. Board members are very happy to meet with community groups and individuals outside of these public meetings, and to receive feedback by phone and by email as well.
