I have been College Librarian at Newnham since 1992, having previously worked as Assistant Librarian at the English and Philosophy Faculty Libraries in the University of Cambridge. My job is to manage the library, and in addition to regular duties, I have assisted with a number of library development projects, including a major new library building (the Horner Markwick Library, opened in 2004). I studied for my degree in English at the University of Cambridge and I have an MA in Library and Information Studies from University College, London. I am a Chartered Member of CILIP (the Chartered Institute of Library and Information Professionals).

Research Interests

I keep up my training and professional development, with a particular interest in academic library services. I am in regular contact with our Directors of Studies to ensure that the Library’s working collection is kept up-to-date for current students. It’s also a real pleasure to carry out research for displays, exhibitions and events which celebrate the Library’s special collections of earlier printed books and Newnham’s history.
