Overseeing the purchasing of print and electronic resources for the University Collection. I maintain the subscriptions and monitor their usage ensuring that the university is getting good value for money for the resources that we purchase. Although based in Carmarthen, I work across all campuses with a Collections Team who are committed to ordering resources and getting them onto the shelves for students’ use in as short a time as possible.
Having worked in a variety of HE Institutions I came to the library in 2010. I enjoy my role immensely as it allows me to combine my interests in helping people learn whilst satisfying my love of searching for information. Professionally I am interested in the accessibility of libraries for those with disabilities/learning impairments with a particular interest in the use of e-resources to facilitate learning and the use of analytical data in shaping a relevant up-to-date library service.
