About

I have worked for UWTSD since 2011 when I joined as a Subject Librarian.  In 2014 I was appointed as Deputy Head of Library and Learning Resources for Carmarthen and Lampeter campuses and was appointed to my current post in November 2016.  Prior to working at UWTSD I worked at the National Library of Wales, Aberystwyth University, the Inner Temple Library (one of the four Inns of Court Libraries in London) and the Welsh Government. 

My professional interests are in measuring the impact of digital and information literacy, legal reference services, the pedagogy of reading lists and information seeking behaviour.
