Rosalie Blake awarded a LIANZA Fellowship

We are so proud of our boss!

Our illlustrious leader has been awarded the highest professional award in New Zealand librarianship.

The full citation can be read here but she has been awarded the award for
... her sustained and energetic contribution to the development of public libraries, for her innovative leadership and contribution to the world of open source library information systems and for outstanding contribution to the profession during her long career.
Rosalie led Horowhenua Library Trust through the development of Koha in 2000, the world's first open source library management system, and more recently Kete in 2007, an open source digital library which employs many so-called web 2.0 technologies. Both of these awards won the 3M Award for Innovation in Libraries in their respective years.

We are so proud of our boss - well done Rosalie, we love working for you.
