This TDR inquiry examines the future of ITP libraries in Aotearoa as it joins the national network known as Te Pūkenga. The questions were asked ‘What will ITP libraries look like in ten years with the introduction of 4.0 technologies’ and ‘what makes a distinctly Aotearoa-based library service’? The inquiry was conducted over the first two years of Te Pūkenga creation. It evolved and moved with the disruptive and unpredictable waves that creating a new network produces. It was also conducted during the two years of the pandemic, COVID-19.
It examines the possibility of a new and innovative library system that fits seamlessly into the structure developed by Te Pūkenga, incorporating Te Tiriti o Waitangi principles, decolonisation practices and equity of service models into the very makeup of the structure. It examines the complex nature of academic library service within its parent institution.
Incorporating evidence from secondary information, surveys, interviews, and personal professional reflections. This inquiry demonstrates a TDR framework by incorporating as many voices as possible from many different stakeholder groups. The surveys and interviews asked questions of the library kaimahi within and external to Te Pūkenga to see what was important in academic library services and what is needed in the next ten years. It also asked the ākonga and general Te Pūkenga kaimahi their thoughts on library services and what they would like to see. The inquiry proposes a national library structure and service that will keep up to date with changing trends, 4.0 technology and disruptions that will arise over the next ten years and how an academic library service can remain relevant in the life of ākonga. It also discusses the need to have a foundation of Te Tiriti o Waitangi and a focus on equity of service to support ākonga success.
