Your ALIA TAS State Manager is Jill Denholm
Jill has had a long career as a Librarian in the university and special library sectors, working in Tasmania, Queensland and New South Wales, most recently as the Manager of Medical Science Libraries at the University of Sydney. As a student, Jill was the recipient of the Sir John Morris Scholarship through the State Library of Tasmania, and later in her career was awarded a UNSW Universitas 21 Fellowship which enabled her to spend several months visiting university libraries throughout the USA. She has been an active ALIA member for many years, and has engaged with a variety of groups and committees, particularly in Tasmania earlier in her career. She is looking forward to returning to her home state and meeting many of you over the coming months, and to working alongside you to strengthen ALIA, and the sector at large in Tasmania.
