I’m Alisa Howlett, a library and information science (LIS) professional based in Queensland, Australia. My industry experience spans over a variety of sectors and information contexts, including information management, government recordkeeping and academic libraries. I am ‘practitioner-researcher’, a contributor to the profession’s research evidence base. I have published in academic journals, presented at industry conferences and other events and have taught into a LIS Masters program. An active participant in professional discourse and industry engagement opportunities, I have served on groups and committees to help inspire and enable new LIS professionals to launch their careers.

Here you will find my professional portfolio and my blog, where I write about my professional interests, what I’m working on, my learning and experiences and advice for new and early career LIS professionals.

Keep up with my latest news, including publications, presentations, professional involvement and projects.
