Dr Getaneh Alemu

Cataloguing and Metadata Librarian 

023 8201 3674


I am responsible for the cataloguing and metadata work of the Collection Support and Access team. My small team provides current, complete and accurate information for library resources both in our online and physical resource collections. 

Through cataloguing new materials and maintaining library databases and discovery services, we organize materials to improve searching and provide seamless access to resources for research and study. 

Career Background

I joined Southampton Solent University at the end of 2014, having just completed my PhD on semantic metadata in digital libraries. I previously worked as Head Librarian at Mekelle University in Ethiopia and I have over fifteen years experience in academic libraries, information management and research.

My research publications are listed on Google Scholar
