Sandra Ryan, FALIA

  • ALIA Fellowship 2021

Sandra Ryan’s contribution to the library and information profession cannot be overstated. Through her work as Library Adviser for the Catholic Education Office Melbourne and in leadership positions across several secondary schools, she has made an indelible mark on the profession. Throughout her career she has provided support and guidance to school library staff, and encouraged their professional development.

Sandra has also been a longstanding supporter of ALIA, primarily through her work in the ALIA Schools Group and Advisory Committee. Notably, she led ALIA Schools during tumultuous times in the 1990s, and set the standard for what a robust and creative ALIA Group could be.

She is well-deserving of this accolade, and the industry is richer for her dedication and fortitude.
