New TSAC announced

Thank you to all Trove Partners who either nominated or were candidates in the recent Trove Strategic Advisory Committee election. Thank you also to everyone who voted to elect a member to provide strategic advice to the National Library of Australia on their behalf.

We are delighted to share your new Trove Strategic Advisory Committee (TSAC) members.

Elected members

The National Library would like to congratulate Jane Miller on being elected by Partners from Group B (Partners from the Traditional Plus and Premium packages) to represent them on TSAC. As the Director of Library Services at Deakin University Library, Jane brings over 25 years’ experience in academic libraries to the position, and we look forward to working with her.

We also congratulate all three nominees for positions elected by and from Group A members (Partners from the Content Contribution, Core, Core Plus and Traditional packages), who were elected by acclamation. We welcome back Laurie Atkinson, and welcome Jennifer Carmody from ACT Legislative Assembly Library and Cassandra Gorton from Monash Health to TSAC.

Appointed members

Under the Terms of Reference for TSAC, the NLA can appoint up to four individuals to complement the skills and expertise of the elected members, and ensure diverse, balanced and equitable representation on the Committee. 

We are delighted to announce the appointments of Nicole Hunt from Townsville City Libraries and Lisa McIntosh from The University of Sydney, as well as the re-appointments of Anna Raunik from the State Library of Qld and Suzie Gately from Library and Archives Northern Territory.

The new elected and appointed members of TSAC will join continuing members Hero Macdonald and Geoff Strempel, and we will farewell Fiona Bradley from the University of New South Wales and Cheryl Hamill from the South Metropolitan Health Service.


The Trove Strategic Advisory Committee (TSAC) is the principal body through which the National Library (NLA) seeks strategic input from Trove Partners.

The Committee is central to ensuring Trove meets the needs of both contributing organisations and the broader Australian community. Specifically, TSAC works with the National Library to:

  • Help shape strategic decision making
  • Represent the view of Trove Partners
  • Assist in evaluating and prioritising existing and new services.

More information about the make-up and role of TSAC can be found in the Trove Strategic Advisory Committee (TSAC) Terms of Reference.

Committee membership

The Committee comprises elected and appointed representatives to ensure equitable representation across the broad spectrum of Trove Partner organisations:

  • Three elected representatives from smaller organisations
  • Three elected representatives from larger organisations
  • Up to four representatives appointed by the Director-General of the Library

Committee members are elected and appointed for three year terms and may serve a maximum of three terms.

Elections were held in November 2019 and elected members will service a term of three years.
