“On behalf of Council and LIANZA membership I would like to acknowledge Hana’s contribution as Editor of Library Life over the last 18 months.

She has worked very hard to create networks within the profession for regular feature articles and to provide a raft of links to topical information and content of general interest with each monthly edition pulled together with her lively editorial column.

Thanks Hana, your energy and enthusiasm has helped shape the future for our online newsletter to inform and engage our membership.” – April 2012

I like the cut of your jib

My first contact with Hana was through Twitter where Hana is a staunch advocate for libraries and LIANZA. This encouraged me to to submit articles for eLibraryLife and with Hana’s positive and can-do approach as an editor, it has definitely been worthwhile.

I’m sure being a volunteer editor has it’s challenges but you wouldn’t know this from Hana. Her enthusiasm for the job and the profession are infectious. Ka mau te wehi Hana!” July 19, 2011

“Hana is very focused on customers and the value that libraries can add to their lives. I’ve worked with Hana on the Wellington committee for the Library and Information Association of New Zealand and found her knowledge of different types of libraries and information technology invaluable to the administering of the professional association.

During her time on the committee her keen sense of advocacy of libraries and librarians made her a very valuable committee member. She has leveraged both her strong networks with librarians and her social media savvy in her role as editor of Library Life, the newsletter of LIANZA. The newsletter highlights many interesting articles and content relevant to the librarian community.” May 17, 2011
