I joined the university as a Library Services Assistant in June 2021 and work Mondays and Tuesdays. My duties include working on the Helpdesk, updating reading lists, dealing with inter-library loans and doing various administrative tasks.
I gained my degree in Library and Information Studies from Manchester Polytechnic and, since graduating, have spent most of my 25 year career as a librarian working in public libraries in Essex, Bexley London Borough and Suffolk. I have also worked in the library of a further education college, in the marketing department of a local book publishing company, for a local district council, in a bookshop and for an examinations syndicate.
When not at work I enjoy quizzes, going to the theatre and cinema, keeping fit, crafts and reading. My husband and I have a beach hut in Felixstowe which is a qreat way to unwind!
