About the Speaker
Andrew succeeded Graeme Rayner as Senior Librarian (Physical Collections) at the University of Tasmania (UTAS) Library in late February 2010. Prior to this succession, Andrew worked in the Resources & Access (R&A) section of UTAS Library for a little over 18 months, for the most part supervising reclassification of UTAS Library’s northern collections from Dewey to Library of Congress. Before his relocation to R&A in mid-2008, Andrew worked at the Australian Maritime College (AMC) Library in Launceston for 12 years, first as Cataloguer then college Librarian. He was actively involved with the integration of the AMC and UTAS libraries during 2007, transferring to UTAS Library when amalgamation of the two libraries became official in January 2008.
