Description

ALIA National 2014 Conference, 15-19 September 2014 Melbourne : together we are stronger

This conference presentation explores how the author, who completed a Graduate Diploma in Library and Information Management at the end of 2012, has leveraged a combination of part-time, casual and volunteer LIS opportunities in a remote region to broaden her skills, develop a local professional network and enjoy some very unusual experiences along the way. 

With a population of just over 25,000 people, the central Australian town of Alice Springs would not appear, at first glance, to offer many opportunities for a newly-minted librarian. Indeed, full-time librarian vacancies in the town are relatively few and far between, primarily as a result of very low turnover in these roles.
