ALIA in Queensland

Your ALIA QLD State Manager 

My name is James Nicholson and I am your Queensland State Manager for ALIA.  

I have A BA (Hons) in Philosophy from Lancaster University in the U.K., and a Master of Information Management from RMIT University here in Australia.  I have experience in public libraries, university libraries, early childhood literacy programs, research and institutional repositories.  During my time with ALIA I have also been an active member, as I was previously the national secretary for the Students and New Graduates Group.

I am here for our members and so should you have any queries, concerns or comments please get in contact with me.  I love to bounce ideas, connect with people and have good conversation, so I very much look forward to meeting you.
