Nicola Laurent is the Project Archivist on the Find & Connect web resource team at the eScholarship Research Centre, University of Melbourne. Nicola has been a member of the team since mid-2014 and her current research interest is the digital preservation of access via persistent links (no more broken links!), particularly to library catalogues and archival collections. Nicola is also interested in finding new accessible ways to disseminate the information available on the Find & Connect web resource via digital humanities tools. Nicola completed her Masters of Business Information Systems Professional at Monash University, Melbourne at the end of 2013, qualifying as a librarian, archivist and record-keeper. Her study included a semester at Simmons College, Boston to gain an international perspective on library management, digital stewardship and archival theory. As an active new professional, Nicola is Secretary of the Australian Society of Archivists Victorian Branch, and a Councillor for the Australian Society of Archivists. Nicola was a recipient of the International Council of Archives New Professional bursary in 2016 and is involved in the ICA’s New Professional Programme. Nicola's aim within the associations is to represent and promote the views of new professionals within the archival profession.
