Updates from Christchurch | Lianza

The Library and Information Association of New Zealand Aotearoa (LIANZA) is posting regular updates on what is happening in Christchurch.

Update as of 09:30 02 March 2011Morning everyone, those of us in the lower North Island had a nasty taste of what our colleagues in Christchurch have been experiencing for many months now. 4.5 – just a tiddler you will be saying, scary nevertheless.

Sue Sutherland, Acting National Librarian has provided the following update:“The National Library staff in Christchurch are all safe, although some staff have severely damaged homes and may not be able to move back in to them.The Christchurch offices in Manchester Street are badly damaged and have been red stickered. The ability to salvage assets and belongings is unknown at this stage. The building remains within the cordon.Curriculum Services are being provided out of the Palmerston North office. More information can be found here http://schools.natlib.govt.nz/ . The Aotearoa People’s Network Kaharoa has remained operational throughout and the service desk is currently being supported via staff from their homes.

Conservation staff are working out what support they may be able to provide once we know if there are heritage collections which have been damaged in the quake.

via Our thoughts go out to the people of Christchurch | Lianza.
