SALIN welcomes our newest member of the committee – Simone Wise

Simone graduated from the Queensland University of Technology’s Masters of Library and Information Science last year. She was awarded the 2010 ALIA QUT student prize for achieving the highest results of her year.

In Brisbane, Simone worked as a Reference Librarian at QUT, and as Collections Assistant at the Queensland Performing Arts Centre Museum. She moved back to her home town of Adelaide earlier this year, where she is now working as a Library Officer for the City of Salisbury, Mawson Lakes branch.

Simone has a particular interest in heritage and history collections, and presented research she’d done into local history collections online at this year’s ALIA Information Online conference in Sydney.

Zombies in the library!

The SALIN Executive Committee has chosen to celebrate our diverse and changing profession through production of the 2011 calendar Zombies in the Library. In twelve beautifully rendered scenes, the calendar covers such topics as the role of the Zombie in reference, the frustrations faced when the Undead hog the photocopier, and for cataloguers, poses the eternal question: 299.675 or 398.21?

Whether it’s something for the wall in Technical Services or simply a Xmas present for Mum, be sure to place your order.

All calendars come in A3 size, are professionally bound and beautifully printed (and you can even choose your starting month).

Here’s where you can preview and order … and if you’d like to join us, we’ve got a Zombies in the library Facebook page!
