LISC stalwart joins NLSA Board
Associate Professor Emeritus Mary Nassimbeni, a well-known face in LIS locally and abroad and a much-loved educator to generations of librarians, has been appointed to the Board of the National Library of South Africa. This is a considerable accolade for Mary, in recognition of her many years of service to and research in the LIS sector in South Africa, her leadership in areas such as public librarianship and the National Council for Library and Information Services (NCLIS) and her dedication to our profession. This position carries with it many challenges, but we are confident that Mary’s expertise and diplomacy will be of considerable value.
As an emeritus member of the LISC staff, Mary continues to support the academic excellence of LISC, remaining very active in teaching, research and in supervision of postgraduate students.
