I’m Alisa Howlett and have embarked on a career as a new information professional. Currently in a Policy Officer role at Queensland State Archives, I provide record keeping and records management advice to Queensland public authorities and input to the best practice record keeping capabilities and government information initiatives. As a Research Officer prior to this, I provided recordkeeping advice and undertook research into emerging issues and trends related to records management.
In addition to my work, I’m a Co ordinator for Queensland’s ALIA New Graduates Group, providing opportunities for networking and professional development to other new information professionals. A recent LIS Masters graduate at Queensland University of Technology (QUT), I’m committed to continued, active participation in the profession.
The purpose of ‘Flight Path’ is both a reflective space and a contribution to ‘the conversation’. Lessons and experiences of a new information professional, as well as an exploration of ideas and evolving professional interests are captured here.
