I am a subject librarian 3 days a week supporting the College of Science. This involves liaising with academic staff about library stock, producing guides and web pages, teaching students and providing one to one help. It also involves dealing with an interesting range of enquiries.

With my other hat I share the post of research librarian with Sam Oakley, working in areas such as open access, bibliometrics and altmetrics and also co-ordinating the library contribution to the postgraduate research training programme.

I work Monday and Tuesday in the research post and the rest of the week as a subject librarian but am willing to swap hats if needed on a different day.
