Roxanne Missingham - ALIA Fellowship

The ALIA Board of Directors is delighted to announce that Roxanne Missingham has been awarded the distinction of an ALIA Fellowship. The Fellowship will be conferred at the ALIA 2008 Biennial Conference in Alice Springs.

Roxanne Missingham has made a distinguished contribution to ALIA and to librarianship over several decades. Roxanne’s professional contributions throughout her career have been characterised by implementation of best practice, development of customer-focused services and transparent processes for collaboration and cooperation within the library community.

Roxanne has demonstrated untiring energy and enthusiasm in contributing to ALIA groups, committees and events and in being an advocate for librarianship in professional and government settings.

Roxanne has worked in a number of special libraries, at the National Library of Australia (NLA) and now as Commonwealth Parliamentary Librarian. Her career has involved a focus on customer services, including implementation of services to remote users when she worked in the Australian Nature Conservation Agency, and CSIRO Wildlife and Ecology. Roxanne has been an early adopter of technology, successfully implementing systems to support customer-focused service models – including automated systems, electronic databases, full-text electronic resources and websites.

On behalf of the library community, we congratulate Roxanne on her ALIA Fellowship.
