Meet your 2015 committee : Event Officers

Today we meet our two new Event Officers for 2015, welcome to the team Eleanor and Anne!



Eleanor Gerrard
Events Officer
Hi I'm Eleanor. I just completed a BA in Communication (Information & Media) and in International Studies at the UTS which included a year in Tokyo, Japan. I’m interested in library and information services across a wide range of areas including law, government, public and specialist services. 
In addition to volunteering at Hurstville Library, Museum & Gallery and at the Japan Foundation, I joined ALIA Sydney to gain invaluable industry experience and knowledge that will help me in my future career. 
I’m looking forward my role as a great opportunity to engage with like-minded professionals and contribute to providing professional development opportunities within the field. I hope to meet lots of new people at the next ALIA Sydney event! 




Anne Reddacliff
Events Officer
I'm Anne and if I was a character in a book I’d be Lily Briscoe from To the Lighthouse or Gerty Farish in The House of Mirth. It depends on the reader. I used to read a lot. Now I’m working full-time as a librarian and moonlighting as a PhD candidate. All I read are journal articles, conference papers and Twitter. I can’t tell you my hobbies include sailing a yacht across Sydney Harbour but I like movies and I once saw Julianne Moore in a park in Greenwich Village. 

I joined ALIA Sydney because I thought it would be a good networking opportunity and I wanted to become more involved in my profession. I look forward to meeting lots of lovely people at ALIA Sydney events. Please say hi, I’ll be the girl in the Emily Green necklace.
