She spent the early part of her career in further education, which had a strong focus on the student experience and was a major influence in her approach to service development. Now as a Director of a converged library and IT service,she has a strong understanding of the synergies to be gained from collaborative working – both within and across sectors. She has been involved in a number of collaborative ventures over the years and is currently Chair of the Northern Collaboration steering group. A project with which she is particularly involved at present is exploring shared/outsourced models for virtual enquiry services. She is a member of the SCONUL Collaboration Strategy Group.
Her other current professional interests are in library impact and ‘super’ convergence service delivery. She is a Fellow of the HEA and CILIP, and currently studying for a professional doctorate.
