*Nicole is a candidate for General Director
I feel it’s important to give back to the Library community and ALIA, which have been supportive to me throughout my career and enabled me to develop my own skills and knowledge, conduct research and progress my career to a leadership role. I can now in turn contribute this expertise to the ALIA board, it’s members and ALIA committees and programs. I also want to contribute to the continued growth and success of our profession and ensure Libraries continue to be valued by our organisations, communities, and governments.
I bring a varied and extensive set of skills to the board that includes experience as a lecturer, librarian, manager and researcher. My research has focused on information, media and digital literacy and I have extensive experience in conducting user experience studies. I have experience managing large projects, coordinating events, running meetings, managing teams and collaborating with colleagues across all Library sectors. I have contributed knowledge to the profession through presentations at conferences, development and delivery of professional development activities and through publication of numerous journal articles.
