Who on earth is writing this dribble?


Chelsea Quake (nee Wright) is a Library Manager and Teacher Librarian living in Melbourne, Australia. She is a strong advocate for access and equity, and the special role that libraries play, in particular, in the lives of young people; be that school libraries, public libraries, academic or special libraries.

Chelsea believes passionately in the value of public pedagogy, “new librarianship”, and the emerging role of librarians as cutting edge innovators, ‘experience architects’, and community builders.

Chelsea believes that information literacy is a human right, and that every young person should have free access to a qualified librarian or teacher-librarian.

Chelsea holds a Bachelor of Business (Info & Knowledge Management), Graduate Diploma of Teaching (P – 12), and an Advanced Diploma in Multimedia.
