Congrats to student Jessica Sullivan for being a VALA Award recipient!
Open to all libraries and information services in Australia, the biennial VALA Award recognizes outstanding and innovative use of ICT to improve service to customers.
VALA is an independent non-for-profit organization focused on providing relevant and use and understanding of information technology in Australian libraries. Their student awards are given to students who have made an outstanding contribution, whilst completing their studies, to the field of information technology.
This year RMIT’s Jessica Sullivan was given the VALA Student Award for her accomplishments in exploring relevant issues affecting our libraries. Jessica found her interest in betting Australia’s library system, whilst she was working at a public library and studying a Bachelor of Arts with a major in History at Melbourne University. Realising that she liked the possibilities of librarianship and information technology, she then began her journey at RMIT focusing to gain a Graduate Diploma of Information Management.
Now with a Bachelor and Graduate Diploma under her belt, Jessica is putting them to good use at the Geelong Regional Library Corporation to begin further achievements in the world of information technology.
Congratulations and keep wowing us Jessica!
