Digital Libraries

I have been working with e-resources in academic libraries since 1996, starting in e-journals at the John Rylands Library, University of Manchester and then moving on to work on and run a JISC-funded ILL project in 1997. During my time working for a library software company, I continued to work with ILL software, online library management systems and e-journal management tools. This included areas such as metadata and digital copyright/IPR. From 2008, I have worked with Institutional Repositories (IRs) in the UK. Initially working as part of the original team for the JISC-funded Repositories Support Project (RSP), I ran workshops, training sessions and events for the project. I then continued to work in the area of IRs for UKOLN at the University of Bath, publishing in journals and on blogs and working as a freelance trainer in this area.

I offer consultancy and also devise and run training courses in the general areas of–

  • Designing & implementing a library portal
  • Identifying, Verifying & Using Free Content Online (for librarians)
  • Institutional Repositories
  • Digitisation for Beginners for librarians and also for staff working in the cultural heritage sector
  • Advanced digitisation
  • Metadata for various groups such as Institutional Repository managers, digital resource managers, digitisation staff
  • Copyright & IPR for various groups, including Inter-Lending Librarians,  Institutional Repository managers, digital resources staff
  • Open Access
