In early July Philip Calvert will be retiring from his position at the School of Information Management at Victoria University of Wellington. I’d like to take this opportunity to acknowledge the significant contribution he has made to library and information studies education in New Zealand.

Philip joined what was then the Department of Librarianship in 1990. He was one of the people who introduced distance education to the postgraduate Diploma of Library and Information Studies in 1992, and has been a strong advocate for research-led practice in the profession. Philip’s teaching and research have focused on library management and the effectiveness of library services; more recently he has also examined secondary school librarianship and information services to those with impairments. In 2017 Philip was awarded a LIANZA Fellowship that acknowledged his outstanding contribution to the library profession in New Zealand, as well as his international influence and impact.

Philip has been a supportive colleague and supervisor, and we wish him well for the future. He will be returning to the School in November to teach INFO 542 Management of Library Services during the summer trimester, allowing us to continue to benefit from his experience and knowledge.
