A chance encounter with an inspiring history librarian as a 3rd year undergrad and a librarian family member ensured that Brenna became a librarian after finishing her BA. Libraries had always been an important part of her life, but it wasn’t until the “hey, I could do that” moment in the history library tutorial that she seriously entertained the possibility of becoming a librarian. Graduation from the BA and a Grad Dip in Information Studies followed…

Brenna now works as a Trainee Graduate Librarian at the University of Adelaide, in Research and Reference. This allows her to do loads of tours, training sessions and plenty of desk shifts. Previous jobs have included library officer at a music library and a public library, call centre at the ATO and lots of volunteer work. Brenna is currently studying for a Masters in Cultural Heritage at Deakin University, and between assignments loves to play her cello, sew, knit, crochet and generally make things.
