Responsibilities

I manage the Collection Support and Access (CSA) Team. We are the people responsible for acquiring learning resources for the library; making the resources discoverable and available to users (through cataloguing and access processes) and obtaining material from other libraries when we are unable to provide it from our own collection (inter-library loans).

I manage the library resources budget and liaise and negotiate with information providers to ensure that the University gets the best value for its money.

Career Background

I joined the University in 2008. I have worked in libraries for longer than I care to admit and during my career I have held posts in public libraries, local government libraries, health services libraries and in other Universities.

Beyond the Library Shelves

Diversity-Champion-Logo-(White)I'm a keen theatre-goer and a devoted patron of Harbour Lights cinema in Southampton. As a gay man, I've long been involved with LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transsexual) issues both in and out of the workplace and I am one of the co-ordinators of Solent University's LGBT Staff Network.

I'm proud to be working for an employer that is taking a proactive approach to making Solent University a welcoming and supportive place for LGBT staff and students.
