Lisa McIntosh

Director Access Services

The University of Sydney

Lisa McIntosh has worked in public, medical and academic libraries for the past 30 years, and has a current portfolio that
includes responsibility for; a very large academic library collection, system and research infrastructure, copyright and information policy, legal deposit and the long-term capture and preservation of digital materials; a university press, support for the digital humanities and big data, and has a special interest in the development of cultural protocols and non-western metadata and knowledge frameworks.

She is a member of ANZREG, PRRLA, CNI, COAR, OLH, ALIA, the CAVAL Mentoring Program, and Standards Australia Information and Documentation, Information Technology - Learning, Education, Training and Research Committee (as the CAUL representative).

I would like to be a member of TSAC because I am fundamentally interested in the intersection of technology and content, and how it can be leveraged, both sustainably and in new ways, to the benefit of a broader range of client groups. I feel my experience and the challenges I am engaged in working on reflect a wide range of community interests, are aligned with the values and role of the National Library as knowledge curator, and put me in a good position to provide active and valuable contributions as part of Trove Strategic Advisory Committee.
