SLQ appoints new state librarian and CEO
Vicki McDonald has been appointed state librarian and CEO of the State Library of Queensland (SLQ).
McDonald has been executive director of library and information services at State Library of NSW for the past three years. She has also previously worked as associate director of library services at QUT and director of client services and collections at SLQ.
Queensland’s Minister for Innovation, Science and the Digital Economy Leanne Enoch said in a statement that McDonald ‘understands the key role that SLQ has in supporting regional libraries and Indigenous Knowledge Centres throughout this state’. ‘Her earlier career in local government and libraries in regional areas provides her with a first-hand understanding of this important role,’ she said.
McDonald begins in the role in September and replaces acting state librarian and CEO Sonia Cooper.
