As Special Collections Librarian I help to lead a team of staff that is dedicated to acquiring, preserving, promoting and facilitating access to the Robinson Library's many heritage collections. 

I am a Chartered Librarian and currently serve on the CILIP Rare Books and Special Collections Group Committee as Fundraising and Partnerships Officer.

I deliver and support undergraduate and postgraduate teaching using our special collections and archives holdings. These sessions range from short introductions to in depth courses and may be general or tailored to specific modules.
