It is with sadness that we report the passing of Janette Telford, an active ALIA Member for nearly 30 years and a great supporter of her fellow library technicians.
For many years, Janette served as Secretary of the ALIA NSW Library Technicians Group and then the ALIA National Library Technicians Group. She helped organise the 2005 Library Technicians conference and was working on the Library Technicians Symposium 2017 when her health failed.
Janette was a regular contributor to INCITE and a participant in the ALIA PD Scheme over many years. She received an ALIA Student Award and the Library Technician Research Award in 2009.
Her day job was as Senior Library Coordinator at the Australian Catholic University, Sydney, where she had worked for 25 years. Our thoughts go to her friends, colleagues and family at this difficult time.
