Curtin Library’s Coordinator, Learning Success Claire Murphy was awarded the prestigious F A Sharr Award at a ceremony held at the State Library of Western Australia on Thursday 24 May. The award is presented to a Western Australian librarian, teacher librarian or library technician within their first three years following graduation, who exhibits the most potential to make a significant contribution to the library profession in WA.

“Being awarded the F A Sharr Award is an incredible honour, joining the ranks of an incredibly inspirational group of library professionals,” Claire said. “It gives me confidence at the beginning of my career to use my voice, suggest new approaches and try new things. I’ve been incredibly fortunate to have received so much support from my managers at Curtin Library. I hope to do them proud!”

At Curtin University Library, Claire’s role focuses on improving the information literacy support for Curtin students. “Whether online, or in-person, through the LibGuides, classes or at the Help Point, the Learning Success team are helping to impart crucial skills for lifelong learning – and I love being part of that,” Claire said. “Curtin graduates need to be able to flourish in a rapidly changing society. The work the Library is doing helps students develop skills in critical thinking, creative problem solving, understanding the importance of evaluating information – important attributes no matter where life takes you.”
