ALIA in Tasmania


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.

Groups in TAS 

ALIA TAS is a cross-regional, cross-sectoral statewide group. It provides professional development activities, membership services and lobbies to increase public awareness of all library services. 

ALIA Tasmania is currently seeking new committee members

Call  for new committee members for the revived ALIA Tasmania group for 2016!

This is a great opportunity for you to contribute to the LIS profession in Tasmania, develop your skills (events, marketing, budgeting, etc.) and expand your professional network. The newly revived group needs a Convenor, Secretary, Treasurer and committee members. It would be ideal if the ALIA Tas Group has people on it from a variety of LIS backgrounds (ie school, special, public, government, etc) and from different  geographic locations (from the north, south and north-west of the State). It would be ideal to have a mix of librarians, library technicians, students, and information specialists. 

If you are interested or would like to find out more about the ALIA TAS Group contact Jill Denholm , or  phone Jill direct, 0448 036 192
