information library trust middlesbrough site web
|From February 2003 until January 2008 I
worked at the Royal College of Midwives as Information Systems Manager. I
was declared redundant in October 2007 (a sudden decision was made
to close the library) and then moved to live in North Yorkshire, where I worked
as Library and Information Services Manager at the
Tees, Esk and Wear Valleys NHS
Foundation Trust, a
mental health and learning disabilities trust in the North East, from March 2008 until May 2012, based in Middlesbrough.
Previously I had managed the library at
the South London and Maudsley NHS
Trust Lambeth Hospital site, for the seven years from October 1995
until January 2003.
In November 2001 I obtained the MSc. Information
Science (Computerised Library Systems) from University
College London, with
My professional interests include web usability, e-resources, social
media, library system technologies, information literacy, and
clinician information use.
My main diversions are choral singing and walking. I used to be a regular member of the choir of St Luke's, Chelsea, whose web site I edited. More recently I sang with the choir of St Nicholas's, Guisborough and the Cleveland Philharmonic Choir. I now share the house I live in with five cats , two of whom were 'originally' mine.
