The Inaugural AUT Library Summer Conference was themed 'the way we work together'.

The day was the culmination of the generosity, courage and hard work of staff from across the the Library's teams. Its aim was to be the beginning of something, perhaps many things. The day was for sharing, for listening and asking, for thinking and challenging, imagining and changing. The day, as tomorrow, was a ‘location of possibility’. A day for the way we work together.

‘location of possibility’ is a phrase from bell hooks

hooks,  b. (1994). Teaching to transgress: Education as the practice of freedom. London: Routledge

Ma te korero, ka mohio,
Ma te mohio, ka marama,
Ma te marama, ka matau,
Ma te matau, ka ora

Through discussion comes awareness
Through awareness comes understanding
Through understanding comes knowledge
Through knowledge comes wellbeing
