Visiting Barraamielinga during sessions

Hey, I am Heather. I am the Customer Services Officer in the Dubbo campus library – that is my posh title. It basically means I am both a Library Officer and Student Central Officer here.

I am a proud Wiradjuri woman and local of our community. I grew up on a farm about 40km out of Dubbo on the Dunedoo Road, and I went to Ballimore Public School unit year 4, when I transferred to Wellington Primary. I graduated from Wellington High School in 2015, then gained early entry to Charles Sturt University through the School Recommendation Scheme (SRS) to Study in 2016. During my time as an undergraduate, I participated in the university’s Strong Moves mentoring program, connecting with First Nations Secondary school students, encouraging them to consider university and further their education – something I am very proud of!

Libraries have always been my safe haven, to escape into an entirely different universe or to dive into new information that I never knew existed, all bound between the covers of a book – or in our more digital age, in a few bites of data – never ceases to boggle my mind. I am currently finishing up my Master of Information Studies (Records and Archive Management) which I hope will lead me into some more museum related work, but I think libraries will always be home.

If you ever have any questions – come find me at Dubbo’s front desk, I promise there will be music playing and a very weird girly ready to try her best to provide you with answers :D
