Academic Engagement (Library & Digital Support)


I am the Senior Information Specialist for the Faculty of Business.

I work closely with academic staff in the Plymouth Business School to provide appropriate paper and electronic resources and provide various teaching and training to staff, undergraduate and postgraduate students, particularly in the area of information literacy.  I also attend programme committee and staff/student liaison meetings and offer 'one-to-one' information skills sessions as required to students and researchers.

My other responsibilities are in research support, advocacy and training in Talis Aspire, Internationalisation, and raising awareness and providing support to our Professional Services colleagues about Library services and facilities.
