About

Hi, Connecting Librarian is known in other circles as Michelle McLean.

I am Information Services Librarian at Casey-Cardinia Library Corporation – a public library service, serving a population of over 300,000 in the local government areas of Casey and Cardinia in the outer south-eastern suburbs of Melbourne, Australia. I am responsible for the library’s online services, reference collections, staff training and more.

In 2006 I was awarded a Ramsay & Reid Scholarship by the State Library of Victoria, which enabled me to conduct a study tour of US public libraries providing cutting edge virtual services, in 2007. I have been blogging professionally since 2005 and have been published in books and journals and presented at several conferences including Computers Online (US), ALIA and VALA.

I have a Bachelor of Arts (Librarianship) (Ballarat CAE 1985) and a Master of Business (Internet Technology) (RMIT 1999).

My professional interests are online services and reference/information services.
