Schwirtlich reappointed NLA director-general

Anne-Marie Schwirtlich has been reappointed as the National Library of Australia (NLA) director-general until March 2017.

Schwirtlich has served in the role since 2011. She was previously CEO and state librarian at the State Library of Victoria for eight years and acting director-general of the National Archives of Australia for three years.

In a statement, the NLA said Schwirtlich has ‘brought years of extensive experience in the libraries, archives and museums sector … to deliver outstanding leadership to the National Library’.

A search for Schwirtlich’s replacement will begin this year.
