About Nicola Barlow
“I have been in the RM industry for over 12 years, working at universities and not for profits in Perth, Western Australia. I started out appraising Edith Cowan University’s unmanaged collection of records, where I was fortunate to work with a great team of experienced and passionate Records professionals and this is where my love of Records management began. I then moved to the not-for -profit where I have remained and am currently a Records Coordinator of a small team and also System Administrator of our SharePoint environment. I recently completed a Postgraduate Degree in Information Systems and am looking forward to my scholarship opportunity in 2023!”
