About me

My role is Deputy Director of Library Services.  I work closely with the faculty and subject librarians and our customer facing staff to ensure that 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, in conjunction with the Disability Service and Access West of England

I have a keen interest in staff development and encouraging reflection and sharing of learning. I have led the Library's efforts to achieve Investors in People Gold accreditation and to  introduce coaching as a management tool into 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), the Widening Participation Committee and the Learning Environments Board.  As a UWE Learning and Teaching Fellow, and a Higher Education Academy Senior Fellow, I am involved in UWE's Community of Practice for Learning and Teaching.

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.
