The council welcomed a new staff member, Alicia Zorzetto, to the Anchorage office on January 10. Zorzetto accepted the position of Digital Collections Librarian, and will be working in the Anchorage office.
Zorzetto has a master’s degree in information and library sciences from the University of Toronto and a master’s in political science from McMaster University in Ontario. Zorzetto has experience managing digital library collections, most recently serving as a systems librarian for the Canadian Forces School of Aerospace Technology and Engineering. Zorzetto also served as a reference librarian at York University’s Leslie Frost Library.
Zorzetto moved to Anchorage in early January from Ontario, Canada. She coached and played basketball for many years, and hopes to resume coaching once she settles into life in Alaska.
Zorzetto will take over management of the council’s document management system. The council has an ever-growing collection of approximately 25,000 digital and physical documents, images and audio-visual files related to the council’s mission. Zorzetto will help improve organization of the current system and develop a plan for managing future documents.
