The Hocken whānau is sad today to be saying farewell to Anne Jackman. As well as being an exceptional Reference Librarian and Hocken ambassador since 2001, Anne has been an outstanding manager, mentor, advocate and friend to many former and current staff members. Well-regarded for her ability to deal with any situation with grace and good humour, we have relied on her – we hope not too much – for her organisational skills and insights, and for her ability to provide the solutions to numerous quandaries. Long-term staff in particular attest to her integral part in establishing our convivial and supportive workplace culture.
Anne, we will all miss you, and wish you all the best in your new role at Knox.
From the staff of the Hocken Collections with all our best wishes.
