Librarians - the dragons of knowledge with Sandra Fry

I firmly believe librarians are the dragons of knowledge. They hoard it, they know where to find the treasures, and they will joyfully share their wisdom and resources with you if you just ask nicely. You don't even have to ask nicely because libraries just put out maps to their, not so secret, hoards. Sandra Fry is another of my favourite QUT colleagues and she has had quite the journey getting to us. Former court reporter Sandra knows all the good things about crime and criminal justice. Listen in to hear Sandra tell us about her time with the ABC as a journalist, surviving a cancer cluster, and all the good things offered by the QUT library. Then go visit a librarian and ask them to share their joy in knowledge with you - they have such shiny things!
