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 very happy to be back in her home state, and to work alongside you to strengthen ALIA, and the sector at large in Tasmania.
