Abstract or Summary

The New Zealand government funds eighteen Institutes of Technology and Polytechnics (ITPs) which provide professional and vocational education and training ranging from introductory studies through to full degree programmes. Courses emphasise practical experience and application to work situations. Many qualifications have integrated work experience components involving on-the-job training. Libraries in the ITP sector are supporting students who may spend limited time on campus, have on-going workplace commitments, may not be traditional library users or information seekers and may not be engaged in face-to-face teaching environments. Collaboration across the sector has a long history, more recently a redefinition of physical space has changed the focus of many ITP libraries.
