National Librarian of Australia to retire this week

I just know from NLA that Jan Fullerton, Director-General of National Library of Australia is going to retire this week:
A staff of NLA told me that this Friday (September 24) will be her last day in NLA.
The position of Director-General has just been advertised so it will be some time before the new Director-General is appointed.
