About me

My role is Deputy Director of Library Services.  I work closely with the faculty and subject librarians and our customer facing colleagues to ensure that our services are relevant to the needs of all library members and that library staff are integrated into the working practices of the faculties, e.g. in terms of curriculum development, resource planning (reading lists), etc.  I have a keen interest in equality and diversity issues and am particularly proud of the disability support provided by Library Services.  We now offer a more fully integrated and inclusive study skills service (Learning Hub) having integrated the university's disability diagnostic and needs assessment service into the library, and are working alongside the specialist study skills and mentoring support professionals supporting neurodiverse students.

I have a keen interest in staff development and encouraging reflection and sharing of learning and have led on the introduction of a coaching approach throughout the library.

I am chair of the University's Academic Literacy Forum and the Peer Assisted Learning Stakeholders' Group.  I am a member of UWE's Learning Teaching and Student Experience Committee (LTSEC) and the Starting Block Steering and Working groups.  

A Senior Fellow of the Higher Education Academy, I am involved in mentoring prospective Fellows and assessing Fellowship applications.

I  am a Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Library and Information Professionals (CILIP), a UWE Learning and Teaching Fellow and a Senior Fellow of the Higher Education Academy.
