Senior Information Specialist

Library & Digital Support (Technology & Information Services)


I am the Senior Information Specialist for the Schools of Business and Government. 

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 Internationalisation, particularly working with the ELC and PUIC to promote our services and provide timely and relevant information literacy support, and also to our Professional Services colleagues to raise awareness of Library services and facilities and support as required.
