DFTBA – Librarian in Training – Graphic Designer – Wannabe Archaeologist & Writer
I started this blog as a way of recording and reflecting on events, workshops and volunteering I did while I studied. It has since evolved to a place where I explore all my interests and musings.
I am currently ALIA’s ACT State Manager and involved in many volunteering endeavours such as Editor at Ancient History Encyclopedia, Digger for Dinosaur Dreaming and Committee Member for Museums Australia‘s ACT Branch.
In previous years I’ve also had many intern and volunteer roles:
- Research intern at Melbourne Museum. You can see what I achieved there by clicking the biography links found on my publications page.
- An internship in the Parliamentary Library, Canberra. I have written about it, so that future applicants have some insights.
- I was ACT Regional Coordinator for ALIA’s Student and New Graduate Group and have organised events such as an ALIA #National16 Conference Wrap, Speak Up! Presenting at Conferences for the first time and GLAMR Connect.
In the meantime, I will continue developing my interests in data visualisation, ancient languages, archaeology, professional writing and finding new and creative ways to bring collections to the people.
