To the backdrop of truck horns the first SLANZA/ARANZ Joint Event was held on Saturday September 24th in Friendly Feilding. With 25 attendees from a wide range of backgrounds the event provided a valuable networking opportunity for those starting out on their archiving journey and those already immersed in archives. We were treated to a fantastic line-up of speakers from Victoria University, Massey University Library, Open Polytechnic of New Zealand, Alexander Turnball Library, Archives Central and Recollect. These speakers provided us with a raft of information to consider when preparing for an archiving project, and guidance on the processes involved. We were then treated to a tour of Archives Central and a Digitisation Workshop during which we saw the process of archiving in action. Receiving input from attendees who have already been through the archiving process was helpful in potentially avoiding some of the pitfalls. A big thank you to the organisers, speakers and attendees for making the day a success.
