    Jessie is a recovering library and archives academic, currently working in the Federal Office for the Arts. Until 2021 she was the (voluntary) Vice President and Managing Editor of the Australian Society of Archivists, and actively involved in the move from a proprietary publishing model to open access. Jessie has a PhD that considers how zines queer archival and collecting practices, and has taught collection management and archival practice in a couple of Australian universities. She is a lapsed zine maker and stencil press printer.


In 2010/11 the Australian Society of Archivists transferred the publishing of their flagship journal Archives and Manuscripts to Taylor and Francis, and in 2022 will move to self publishing the journal gold OA. This sharing session will introduce the journal and it’s history, the society and its governance structure, and discuss a number of the achievements and challenges that the society has and is still facing in the move. The session will allow lots of time for discussion and sharing of knowledge and experience transferable to the GLAM sector.
