Every year the Research Library sends out the Auckland Art Gallery's latest publications on exchange to around 70 public art gallery's at home and abroad, including the Tate, San Francisco Museum of Modern Art and the Centre Pompidou to name a few. Caroline McBride (pictured) cheerfully packages up the exhibition catalogues Mystic Truths, Turuki Turuki! Paneke Paneke! and the Walters Prize 2008, and the second issue of the "Reading Room" journal. The publications exchange programme is a long-standing tradition between art libraries around the world. It is a very successful collegial activity, providing access to a wide range of current exhibition catalogues and a form of targeted distribution.
