Meet the Staff: ALICIA STARR

August 9, 2018 by Lynette Frazer

Find me: around the library or smiling at the circulation desk on the library main floor

How I help students and staff: I assist students with general library enquiries at the circulation desk as well as helping distance students with their borrowing requests and student inter-campus loan requests between Avondale Libraries Lake Macquarie and Sydney Campuses. I help staff ensure that their research publications are included in Avondale’s institutional repository, ResearchOnline@Avondale – https://research.avondale.edu.au/ and that any copyright restrictions by publishers are adhered to. I also ensure that staff research publications are reported to the research office so staff may be allocated appropriate research points.

Ask me about: institutional repositories, copyright, general library service queries; distance student requests, indexing, inter-campus loans

I’m interested in: reading, scrapbooking, and cardmaking

What I’m reading/watching/listening to right now: Currently reading: The woman in the Window by A. J. Finn; Currently watching: Shameless (US) on Netflix; Currently listening: divide by Ed Sheeran

When I’m not at work, I: am a homebody and love spending time with my husband and two cats: Inka and Kittie
