Open Polytechnic lecturer receives honour

Open Polytechnic lecturer receives fellowship honour

Open Polytechnic lecturer Alison Fields has been awarded a fellowship from the Library and Information Association of New Zealand Aotearoa (LIANZA).

Ms Fields, a Senior Lecturer in Information and Library Studies at the Open Polytechnic, says receiving the award was a huge honour as it is the highest professional award within the New Zealand library and information profession.

“I have been working and lecturing in the field for over 20 years, and am thrilled to receive the award. It recognises not only the contributions I have made to the library profession itself and to the new staff entering it over this time span, but also the contribution of others to my own professional life in reaching this level.”

Only a handful of LIANZA Fellowships are awarded each year. Ms Fields received the prestigious award for her sustained and professional contribution in the fields of education and research.
