CONZULSys was formed under the aegis of CONZUL (Council of New Zealand University Librarians) in a climate of increasing collaboration and the need to provide an efficient, cost effective library service to New Zealand university students, staff and researchers. The consortium began with four members – Auckland University of Technology, University of Otago, University of Waikato, and Victoria University of Wellington – for the joint purchase and operation of an Information & Resource Access Management System (IRAMS) to be managed in a hosted environment. Progress in implementation and future development of the consortium are outlined.
