I am a Faculty Librarian with responsibility for developing print and electronic library collections to support teaching and research across subject disciplines in LUMS. This involves identifying and responding to resource requirements, together with liaison with library vendors and publishers, including the negotiation of licence terms. I also have responsibility for the advocacy and support of the online resource list system, Leganto, for the departments I support.
Together with my colleague Andy Holgate I focus on supporting staff and students in LUMS with a range of library-related issues. This includes providing advice on selecting and using specialist databases, planning search strategies, systematic literature searching, referencing and using bibliographic software to manage citations and produce bibliographies.
In addition to my Faculty responsibilities I co-ordinate library provision for our institutional teaching partnerships, both overseas and in the UK. I coordinate events and activities associated with diversifying and decolonising the library, together with organising celebrations and recognising events such as Black History Month and LGBT+ History Month. I also contribute to the development of library services and resources for University alumnus.
