I’m Alisa Howlett and have embarked on a career as a new information professional, currently a Research Officer at Queensland State Archives. My previous role in aviation as a Technical Librarian involved managing, maintaining and providing access to a electronic collection of engineering technical data and publications.
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 Masters student at Queensland University of Technology (QUT), completing my studies in library and information science, 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.
I also have an adventurous side, writing a travel blog called ‘Leaps ‘n Bounds’ to share my adventures, experiences and travel tips.
The photo situated in the header of ‘Flight Path’, was taken at Hamelin Bay, Margaret River region in September 2011.
